Wash U Study on Health of African-Americans in St. Louis Releases First Brief

One in six African-American St. Louisans died in 2011 due to poverty or low levels of education, concludes a new report from the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis. The policy brief focuses on the need to improve health by focusing on education and economic opportunity in addition to the more traditional medical approaches. The brief was released this week to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the March on Washington.
