$21M gift to Harvard University funds new health and happiness center

A gift to Harvard’s public health school will fund a new center to find out exactly how being happier can help make people healthier.

The Lee Kum Kee family announced a gift of more than $21 million to establish the Lee Kum Sheung Center for Health and Happiness at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

The center will help to identify the psychological, social and emotional strengths and assets that may protect people against some diseases and enable them to enjoy longer, happier and healthier lives.
