A&S 262 Health in the Life Course Perspective

Health can be understood only by examining long-term patterns of aging, exposure to risk and protective factors, and individual choices. One's health at 40 or 70 reflects not only current and recent experiences, but also conditions experienced in childhood. The purpose of this course is to provide an introduction to life course theory as it pertains to health and to learn about cutting edge research in this area. [W]
