Poor health can have a devastating impact on one’s ability to earn a living wage and lead a full life. Improving health status from fair or poor to very good or excellent would increase both work effort and annual earnings by 15% to 20%.
By working with hospitals, health care providers, and local non-profits, LEO evaluates programs that improve health outcomes such as use of emergency care, hospital admissions, and mortality.
Featured projects include the Nightingale Respite Center, a temporary respite program that provides bed rest and recuperation to homeless individuals discharged from hospitals.
