Agency, Belonging & Health

ONGOING

A look at the medical evidence to see whether having agency (A) and belonging (B) can change (C) the odds on health

Reports

Since the start of 2020, I have been exploring the bio-medical literature to understand whether having agency and a sense of belonging make good health more likely. This work is in partnership with the California Endowment. In December 2020, we published a report on the link between community agency and health, and are now using it to write an article on how health policy and the practice of public health need to change to embrace community power. The work is set to continue until the end of 2022.
