New evidence suggests that rates of intergenerational economic mobility—a measure of economic opportunity—vary dramatically across US counties. How might inequality of opportunity influence individual and population health? And to what extent does health itself serve as a determinant of intergenerational economic mobility? In this webinar, Rourke O’Brien (La Follette School of Public Affairs at UW–Madison) and Atheendar Venkataramani (Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School) will examine the interplay between health and economic opportunity and discuss the implications of this nexus for public policy.
