IPHI fills a critical niche in DC-MD-VA region

Widely considered the most resourced country in the world, the U.S. has a life expectancy that ranks only 38 among industrialized nations, and life expectancy in many parts of the region falls well below the U.S. national average. Within the region as elsewhere in the U.S., an individual’s zip code is a better predictor of health than his or her genetic code, with life expectancy and quality of life varying dramatically by neighborhood and population group.
IPHI’s vision is to advance the capital region as an example for the nation for how to create a healthy society. This bold vision will require the best in ideas, partners and resources, and IPHI endeavors to facilitate interconnections and fill critical gaps so our system of public health activities can achieve more than the sum of its parts.
