From Background to Foreground: Mortality Risk and the Socioeconomic Attainments of Parents and Adult Children: Haddin Forum

This is a past event.

The Theodore Haddin Arts and Sciences Forum is an ongoing lecture series at UAB's College of Arts and Sciences. It is a venue for Arts and Sciences faculty to talk about their research with their colleagues, students, and members of the public, and is designed to celebrate faculty work and to launch new conversations.

On October 11, 2019, Assistant Professor of Sociology J.D. Wolfe, Ph.D., will present "From Background to Foreground: Mortality Risk and the Socioeconomic Attainments of Parents and Adult Children." Educational, occupational, and economic achievements are important predictors of longevity in the U.S. population. In his talk, Dr. Wolfe will discuss sociological explanations for why this is the case and new research exploring the links between mortality risk among older adults and the education and occupation of family members.
