Cut Short: Declining Life Expectancy in the US

The Baker Cafe Series is an informal discussion about various topics. Guests are encouraged to ask questions that pertain to the topic and gain insight straight from the experts. We even provide refreshments!

Join Dr. Carole R. Meyers, associate professor in the College of Nursing and the Department of Public Health, for coffee and light discussion regarding leading causes of death in U.S.; explore contributors to declining life expectancy in the U.S.; use morbidity and mortality profile to identify & discuss “wicked” societal problems, focusing on gun violence, suicide, deaths of despair, maternal mortality, and medical errors.

This event is free and open to the public. Guests may park in the Vol Hall Garage on White Avenue at no charge by requesting a parking voucher from Baker Center staff at the event.
