In a California Healthline report by Rachel Dornhelm, experts discussed research efforts to gauge public health effects of public policy decisions — such as the recent effort to increase the minimum wage, which some researchers say could mean long-range health improvements for lower-income Californians.
The report includes comments from:
- Rajiv Bhatia, visiting scholar at the UC-Berkeley School of Public Health;
- Gerald Kominski, director of the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research; Mark Leno, state senator from San Francisco;
- Mike Schommer, communications director for the Minnesota Department of Health; and
- Lea Selitsky, a Wayne State University medical student (Dornhelm, California Healthline, 7/9/14).
