Socioeconomic Influences on Health: Uncovering the Mechanisms
A person’s education, income, and occupation, as well as their subjective sense of their social standing in society, are strong predictors of disease morbidity and mortality. But how do these social and economic factors get “under the skin” to influence physical health?
Keely Muscatell, PhD, will discuss her program of research that attempts to undercover the neural, psychological, and physiological mechanisms by which socioeconomic status impacts health outcomes.
This event will be held on September 17th, 10:00 -11:00 AM, in Brinkhous-Bullitt 219, at the office of the North Carolina Translational and Clinical Sciences Institute, the integrated hub of the CTSA at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
