Opportunity for Health

Opportunity for Health logo

Opportunity for Health, led by Atheendar Venkataramani, MD, PhD, examines how economic opportunity shapes our health and how health, in turn, drives opportunity. The lab is dedicated to understanding how the American Dream affects America’s health, and identifying ways to help bolster both economic opportunity and health. To do so, the team conducts cutting-edge research using advanced statistical techniques and new data on economic opportunity—and the events and policies that shape it—to achieve these goals. The research team seeks to work closely with researchers, policymakers, and leaders in industry to turn their research into action.
