The Center for Demographic and Social Analysis presents
"Social and Biological Linkages in Health and Well-being across the Life Course”
with Kathleen Mullan Harris, James E. Haar Professor of Sociology, University of North Carolina
Tuesday, April 1, 2014
Social Science Plaza A, Room 2112
This presentation will showcase a design and set of findings for understanding social and biological linkages in health and well-being across the life course, focusing particular attention on the early life course during the transition from adolescence into adulthood. Research on three themes will be presented: how social environments and experiences are linked to health inequalities across stages of the life course using data from several national cohort studies; the role of health in social stratification processes; and the transition to adulthood as a critical life stage for the development of health disparities in adulthood. Plans for the next wave of data collection and future research in the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health) will also be presented.
Part of the Population, Society and Inequality Colloquium Series
