AGENDA

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES

  1. Understand the complex relationship between education and health, and how this understanding could inform our nation’s investments and policies
  2. Explore how the health and education sectors can work together more effectively to achieve co-benefits (improvements in educational attainment and in health status) by:
    1. Learning from education leaders how the health sector could support their efforts at the level of students, families, and schools (e.g., addressing the health care needs, advocating for better health care for children and better connections between school and health care delivery systems)
    2. Learning from education leaders which education policy efforts could benefit most from health sector partners’ contributions and what (education or other) policy and investment changes could contribute to co-benefits for health and education
    3. Highlighting state and local examples of successful collaboration between the health and education sectors

Research based on decades of experience in the developing world has identified educational status, especially the status of the mother, as a major predictor of health outcomes and that the literature indicates that the gradient in health outcomes by educational attainment has steepened over the last four decades across the United States. Since the 1990s, while the average life expectancy in the United States has been steadily increasing, life expectancy has actually decreased for people without a high school education, especially white women.

To understand the complex relationship between education and health and how this understanding could inform our nation's investments and policies, the Institute of Medicine Roundtable on Population Health Improvement held a public workshop in Washington, DC, on June 5, 2014. This workshop, which featured presentations and extensive discussion periods, also explored how the health and education sectors can work together more effectively to achieve improvements in both health status and educational achievement. This report summarizes the presentations and discussion of the workshop.
