Caregivers, Is It Time to Move Your Loved-one To A Better Zip Code?

Having access to more doctors may lead to longer lifespans in the United States, according to a new study. When individuals moved to zip codes that have more physicians, lifespans increased up to 114.2 days per decade for every 10 additional primary care physicians per 100,000 people in the community. Due to the increased U.S. population growth between 2005 and 2015, the number of primary care physicians per 100,000 people has decreased from 46.6 to 41.4 between 2005 and 2015, researchers observe.
