How to make Scotland well again, with:
Sir Harry Burns, Professor of Global Public Health, University of Strathclyde
Scotland is infamous for its poor health. The life expectancy of boys born in Glasgow is six years lower than the rest of the United Kingdom. And it’s not much better for girls. Why is this?

With this understanding, we know how to make Scotland healthier and happier.
