Where You Live Can Impact Your Life

  • As important as it is, most experts agree that health care contributes only about 10-15% to health outcomes and life span. Where you live is probably a bigger determinant of your health than whether you have health insurance.

    • People who live in Bayview/Hunters Point can expect to live on average 14 years less than their counterparts on Russian Hill

Available data on african american health disparities

Former Surgeon General David Satcher and his colleagues calculated that during 1991-2000, nearly 177,000 deaths were averted because of advances in medical technology, but if we were to eliminate the disparity between African Americans and whites, we would have avoided over 886,000 deaths.
