Pew and Robert Wood Johnson Tackle a Different Sort of Health Issue

Pew Charitable Trusts and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation have announced the Health Impact Project, a national initiative that will examine the impact of government programs and actions on health. The idea is to look at activities and projects that policy makers typically do not associate with health - road construction projects, housing policies and housing developments, labor policies, oil and gas development, and a variety of other government programs.  The initiative hopes to identify the unintended health consequences of these projects, giving policy makers better - and more complete - information.
