Close Health Gaps Project – RWJF & Center on Society and Health VCU

Babies born 7 “L” stops apart in Chicago face up to a 16 yr difference in life expectancy.

The VCU Center on Society and Health, with support from RWJF, has created a series of maps that illustrate the vastly different health outcomes experienced by Americans living just a few miles apart, helping us to consider the social determinants of health that come in to play.

How does Chicago map out?
