4:30 – 6:30. “Income Inequality and Health in America.” Boston University U: Instructional Building, Hiebert Lounge, 72 East Concord Street.
Income inequality in the United States has steadily increased over the last four decades. Although this inequality has been a part of the recent national public conversation, including during this last federal election cycle, the science regarding the relationship between income inequality and population health remains unresolved. This spring, The Lancet will publish a special issue featuring five papers that advance our understanding of this issue. Boston University School of Public Health welcomes several of the issue’s authors for a discussion.
