2 Life Course Life Course looks at health as an integrated continuum and suggests that a complex interplay of biological, behavioral, psychological, social, and environmental factors contribute to health outcomes across the course of a person's life. It builds on recent social science and public health literature that posits that each life stage influences the next and that social, economic, and physical environments interacting across the life course have a profound impact on individual and community health.

3 The Life Course Game 2012 DHMIC Summit featured the Life Course Board Game In the Life Course Game, participants are led through an interactive experience, designed to illustrate key concepts of the life course framework. Specifically, participants receive birth certificates at the start of the game that identify socially- and biologically-based historical factors that help determine their course in life. As they work their way through the game board, each person's roll of the dice identifies risk factors and protective factors that either push down or lift up their overall health trajectory and life course. The game concludes with each player rolling the dice a final time to determine their end-of-life outcomes (retirement projections, years-of-life remaining, etc.) The Life Course Game was created and developed by CityMatCH
