Aetna, Harvard Partner for Population Health Research Initiative

 Aetna will partner with the Harvard T.H. Chan School for Public Health for a five-year research collaborative that will study the determinants of well-being and their correlation to population health and productivity.

Researchers from both organizations will gather data across six domains, including physical health, emotional health, social connectedness, financial security, purpose, and character strengths. They will use their findings to discover new ways to enhance population wellness.

“This project will generate a uniquely rich data set on well-being that could tremendously inform the way we understand public health and well-being,” said Tyler VanderWeele, PhD, the John L. Loeb and Frances Lehman Loeb Professor of Epidemiology at Harvard Chan School and director of Harvard’s Program on Integrative Knowledge and Human Flourishing.
