Why is this important?

Human behavior contributes strongly to health outcomes. A majority of preventable deaths and illnesses in the United States are directly caused by human behaviors such as smoking, risky sexual behaviors and unhealthful diets. Behavior modification depends on many structural and environmental factors as well as individual motivation and education.
