For the Sake of All is a multi-disciplinary study on the health and well-being of African Americans in St. Louis. The study area includes St. Louis City and County.  The first phase of the project culminated in May, 2014 with the release of a final report at a community conference. The conference and report release coincided with the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education and the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Two Lives of Jasmine – A simplified story of a girl told from the perspectives of two different starting points in life

The video below describes how the life and health outcomes of a little girl we’re calling “Jasmine” can be dramatically different based on the circumstances into which she is born.  Although there are multiple opportunities for Jasmine to make choices about her life, these choices are shaped by her starting point in life and the resources available to her.
