Health Throughout the Course of Life
Researchers in the Health and Society Program examine the social, economic, psychological, and behavioral aspects of health across the course of life.
The Health and Society Program (H&S) is an interdisciplinary group of faculty who investigate the social, economic, behavioral, and biological determinants of health. The program is comprised of researchers from Anthropology, Economics, Information Management, Geography, Psychology, Integrative Physiology, and Sociology.
The work of our program emphasizes three distinct themes: Health and Heath Behaviors; Social and Health Policy; and Biosocial Interactions.

Social contexts, social identities, and social roles are fundamental precursors to individual and population health. Our highly interdisciplinary and collaborative group of researchers initiate scientific inquiry with this broad and multilevel perspective which is providing new insights into the social determinants of health.Jason BoardmanDirector, Health and Society Program
