Abstract:

The purpose of this book is to gain a better understanding of the multitude of factors that determine longer life and improved quality of life in the years a person is alive. While the emphasis is primarily on the social and behavioral determinants that largely impact the health and well-being of individuals, this publication also addresses quality of life factors and determinants more broadly. This book originated with the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) in NIH's Office of the Director. As part of long-term strategic priority setting, we sought to identify the most important factors that influence the length and quality of human life. They were given the opportunity to invite a group of the most distinguished scholars to contribute chapters summarizing current research. The authors were asked to summarize what is currently known and to suggest directions for future scientific research. Each chapter in this book considers an area of investigation and ends with suggestions for future research and implications of current research for policy and practice. To contextualize these chapters and to highlight the pressing nature of the questions this book tackles, first it provides a summary of the state of Americans' health and well-being in comparison to our international peers and present more background concerning the limitations of current approaches to improving health and well-being.
