Only six miles separate the Baltimore neighborhoods of Roland Park and Hollins Market, but they might as well be worlds apart. For one thing, the affluent and educated residents of Roland Park can expect to live 20 years longer on average than their counterparts in Hollins Market.
While there are differences in access to health care services and quality of care, the main reason for the 20 year difference in life expectancy has less to do with medical care than it has to do with the issues and topics being presented and discussed at this conference.
