What is OUTLIER?

OUTLIER is a newsletter about health and medicine in the United States, and how it compares to the rest of the world. Because I am a medical sociologist, that means it’s about more than just health and medicine. It’s about topics like minimum wage laws, systemic racism, social trust, and the wide range of social factors that shape population health and may help explain why the United States has become such an outlier on measures of health and life expectancy.
