Course Description

This course is intended to provide an in-depth introduction to the major conceptual frameworks and empirical research examining distal and proximate social factors influencing adult health. The underlying question is - "Does the body forget insults and exposures from adverse social conditions over the life course?" In grappling with this question, we will pay close attention to the intersection between the etiology of adult health conditions and the major life-course trajectories of socioeconomic position and family. Of major importance will be the assessment of key social and biological pathways linking social conditions at particular points in the life course with adult health outcomes.
