Optimal Health
Health Equity2
Population Health is defined as strategies that link clinical and non-clinical approaches (such as housing or access to food) for improving the health of a group of individuals, including the distribution of such outcomes within the group. These groups can be geographically defined (e.g., zip code or city) or they may share some characteristics (such as age or income level).

Tobacco use in and around hospitals poses health and safety risks for patients, employees and visitors. Kansas has a statute banning smoking in medical care facilities and many hospitals have expanded that ban to hospital property.
