Poverty, Biology, and Health: Will the Circle Be Unbroken?

Thursday, January 22, 3:30 p.m. Fralin Life Science Institute Auditorium

Drs. Sharon and Craig Ramey will present recent findings from their research on the intergenerational and lifelong effects of impoverished environments, and the extent to which systematic, theory-driven interventions can improve health outcomes. The Rameys will also discuss the search for biological and behavioral mechanisms responsible for perpetuating, as well as altering, the negative effects of poverty.
