Webinar Series - Rising Midlife Mortality Rates and Socioeconomic Disparities

Please join the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine for a series of webinars based on the recently released report High and Rising Mortality Rates among Working-Aged Adults. The webinars will explore the key factors that are contributing to rising mortality rates among working-age adults (i.e., middle-aged and younger adults ages 25-64 years). Join us as we develop a deeper understanding of these complex phenomena and discuss implications for policy and research.
