A Conversation With Dr. Kofi Essel on Why Food as Medicine Matters to Elevance Health

Access to nutritious food is an important social driver that affects health. ‘Access’ means a person has the money to pay for nutritious food, the transportation to a store that sells it, and the tools and skills to prepare and serve it. It’s one of several health-related social needs that, when addressed, can influence health as much as exercise frequency, tobacco use or blood pressure.

Three Ways Substance Use Disorder Treatment Practice Rules Are Evolving

Rules and guidelines governing medication-assisted treatment for substance use disorders are evolving as the conditions themselves are better understood.

Community Health

Community health plays a more important role in our lives than most of us realize. Our whole health is heavily influenced by those around us in many ways. When people have access to green space and public transportation, nearby stores with nutritious food, and the support of neighbors — both community and individual health benefit.

A Community Health Story

How Community Involvement Affects Health

A neighborhood baby shower; a weekly card game among retirees; a training session for a 5K walk. These might seem like unrelated moments in daily life, but each represents a distinct connection to community.

These and all communities have something in common: They offer a sense of belonging and connection with others. Community involvement can also have health benefits.

The most top-of-mind community may be the neighborhood or city where you live. The true definition of community goes far beyond geography. People with diverse characteristics and experiences also can belong to communities based on social ties, common perspectives or interests, or demographics.

Being engaged in communities can elevate a person’s whole health. When we more deeply understand individual and community needs, opportunities, and successes, we can build connections that support health."
