"What Kaiser Permanente Sees In The Community" - Forbes. 5/6/2019.
For example, in a study just published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, a team of researchers from UCLA (Adam B. Schickedanz, MD, PhD, José J. Escarce, MD, PhD, Neal Halfon, MD, MPH, and Paul J. Chung, MD, MS) and the University of Michigan (Narayan Sastry, PhD) found that those who had more adverse experiences as kids ended up more likely to have higher household out-of-pocket medical costs as adults. Therefore, says Bernard Tyson, Chairman and CEO of Kaiser Permanente, that "improving communities for kids can help improve the health of future Kaiser Permanente members."
