This sounds like a great program. However, Dr. Iton's comment, "Tell me your ZIP code, and I can tell you how long you'll live" doesn't work with ZIP code 94303 because 94303 also covers part of Palo Alto (where I live, two blocks from Middlefield). The life statistics for East Palo Alto and Palo Alto are very different, and some people assume that if you live in 94303 you live in East Palo Alto.

Exactly what I was thinking about the zip. I am just across in 94306, but have family in 303.
Besides that minor detail, I really hope the program works!

Talk about being literal! We've had this zip code for decades & there's been a health disparity for decades. Just use the name of your city.
