There is virtually no aspect of a womans life circumstances that is not associated with her health status. For example, women with lower incomes and fewer work opportunities are more likely to experience chronic conditions and inferior health overall. Cumulative social stressors are related to worse health in mothers. Lower income women and female caregivers face double jeopardy: they are more likely to experience health problems and more likely to report difficulties getting care. And access to insurance alone is unlikely to improve access to care for most lower income women.
Join us for a provocative discussion of these findings and their policy implications.
Jacobs Institute Breakfast Seminars are sponsored through an unrestricted grant by Wyeth-Ayerst Laboratories.
