Harvard Pop Center Social Demography Seminar: Rural population health in the context of drug overdoses, COVID-19, and longer-term mortality trends.

Shannon M. Monnat, PhD, associate professor of sociology; Lerner Chair for Public Health Promotion & Lerner Center director; and co-director of the Policy, Place and Population Health Lab, Syracuse University, will present Rural population health in the context of drug overdoses, COVID-19, and longer-term mortality trends.
The Social Demography Seminar (SDS) series at the Center for Population and Development Studies provides a lively forum for scholars from across the university to discuss in-progress social scientific and population research. Social demography includes work that uses demographic methods to describe and explain the distribution of social goods across populations. The series offers presentations on a wide variety of topics such as family, gender, race/ethnicity, population health—including mortality, morbidity, and functional health—inequality, immigration, fertility, and the institutional arrangements that shape and respond to population processes.
