Grave Consequences: Why Some Americans Are No Longer Living Longer

April 9, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

To RSVP, email mhollis@dc-crd.com

With American life expectancy having risen steadily generation after generation, we’ve come to view this trajectory as a permanent feature of the American experience. In the early 21st Century, however, this trend is no longer assured. American mortality has become volatile and variable, with some groups even seeing marked declines in lifespan. Join us for a fascinating discussion of how societal conditions such as opioid addiction and the geographic context are shaping U.S. mortality rates—and the consequences such changes may impose on American society.

Dr. Mark Mather, Population Reference Bureau
