Beyond Healthcare: Strategies for Improving Health and Lowering Costs

Dr. Woolf’s research demonstrates that addressing poverty, education, and the causes of racial and ethnic disparities will improve the health of Americans far more than medical technological advances.  Dr. Woolf brings this message to policymakers and to the public through testimony in Congress, editorials in major newspapers, web-based tools, and speeches. 
Dr. Woolf served as senior and science advisor to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.  Dr. Woolf edited the first two editions of the Guide to Clinical Preventive Services and is author of the Health Promotion and Disease Prevention in Clinical Practice textbook.  He was elected to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies in 2001.
