Education

Education is associated with improved health throughout life, independent of other variables such as behaviors. Education starts before the school years; early years are critical to children’s development and lifelong health. Good parenting skills, access to high quality early childhood education, and access to affordable quality child care are all important contributors to development and later learning. Adequate education, starting early in life, can reduce the risk of a number of conditions and diseases.
