About the film
The Raising of America will reframe the way we look at early child health and development. This ambitious documentary series by the producers of Unnatural Causes: Is Inequality Making Us Sick? explores how a strong start for all our kids leads not only to better individual life course outcomes (learning, earning and physical and mental health) but also to a healthier, safer, better educated and more prosperous and equitable America.
