We are facing unprecedented levels of obesity, chronic disease and stress due to a massive biological-cultural mismatch that we have collectively created in the U.S. and globally.

CVS Health-Aetna is leading the way by revisiting how factors beyond physical and emotional health impact overall well-being. In collaboration with faculty at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, the company is studying broader determinants of well-being, such as our financial security, social relationships and purpose in life.
