Oct 12, 2018 | health and medicine

About this episode

Adults living in certain US states suffer from more illnesses, more disability, and die sooner than residents of others. Dr Mark D. Hayward of the University of Texas at Austin and Dr Jennifer Karas Montez of Syracuse University are investigating these differences in health and exploring their relationship with educational attainment and state-specific policies, so they can work towards addressing the causes of this disparity.
