A standing-room-only crowd gathered on Capitol Hill on Monday, April 9, 2018, to hear the latest findings on trends in Adult Mortality—trends that include reversals in life expectancy, stark regional differences and widening gaps among certain groups. The briefing, titled Grave Consequences: Why Some Americans Are No Longer Living Longer, featured a distinguished panel of researchers, including Dr. Andrew Fenelon (U. of Maryland), Dr. Shannon Monnat (Syracuse U.) and Dr. John Haaga of the National Institute on Aging. Dr. Mark Mather of the Population Reference Bureau (PRB) served as moderator.
The briefing was cosponsored by the Alliance on Aging Research, the American Sociological Association, the American Statistical Association, the Association of Population Centers, the Consortium of Social Science Associations, COPAFS, the Gerontological Society of America, NAPHSIS and the Population Reference Bureau.
