NASEM Publishes Workshop Proceedings on Tax Policy to Advance Population Health
This week, the National Academies on Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) released proceedings that chronicle the national workshop Exploring Tax Policy to Advance Population Health, Health Equity, and Economic Prosperity that was held in December 2017 in Oakland. The proceeding summarizes presentations and discussions during the one-day workshop related to the use of taxation and tax policy as a means to influence population health. The workshop covered a range of potential financing sources for various population health activities from obesity and diabetes prevention to universal pre-kindergarten.
