    Event Description:
    Dr. Anthony Iton Event

    Dr. Anthony Iton, Senior Vice President for Healthy Communities at The California Endowment, has been exploring this question and become a leading national expert on the inter-relationship between educational achievement, socio-economic status, and simple geography.  His work has shown that every additional $12,500 in household income buys one year of life expectancy.  He argues that investing in education and closing the achievement gap will do far more to improve health outcomes for low-income neighborhoods than making healthcare more affordable.
