Conceptualizing and Measuring Financial Well-being in Population Health Research

Room 717

Research on health disparities often focuses on describing, monitoring and attempting to eliminate disparate health outcomes across socioeconomic categories. Yet, it remains unclear exactly what aspects of material conditions are linked to specific health outcomes. Dr. Reginald Tucker-Seeley will present on the development of a conceptual model of financial well-being and creating a survey of financial well-being in the Money-Health Connection Study. 

Dr. Reginald Tucker-Seeley’s MA, ScM, ScD, research focuses primarily on social determinants of health across the life course, such as the association between the neighborhood environment and health behavior; and on individual-level socioeconomic determinants of multimorbidity, mortality, self-rated physical, mental, and oral health, and adult height. He is an Assistant Professor of Gerontology in the Leonard Davis School of Gerontology at the University of Southern California (USC) and is currently a Health Policy Fellow at the National Academy of Medicine.

 

Light refreshments will be served.
