Financial Education and Coaching: A Lifestyle Medicine Approach to Addressing Financial Stress

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Economic stability is a well-documented social determinant of health, and financial stress is an important driver for the health disparities observed in the poor. Persons under financial stress are more likely to engage in smoking, alcohol consumption, overspending, poor diet, and reduced exercise. Financial education and coaching is one strategy that can be used to reduce financial stress and potentially improve engagement in healthy lifestyle behaviors, quality of life, and objective health outcomes. A conceptual model describing the link between financial education/coaching and health is described along with preliminary data from a randomized controlled trial evaluating this intervention.
