Author: dunawaya

From RWJF:

On April 26th the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will host a free webinar on the effects that income, education and race have on health.

The webinar will address such questions as: How do income and wealth influence health beyond the ability to afford health care? How do experiences based on a person’s race or ethnic group affect their health? Can a few additional years of education meaningfully improve well-being?

James Marks, M.D., M.P.H., senior vice president and director of the Health Group at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, will kick off the discussion with an expert panel that includes:

  • Paula Braveman, M.D., M.P.H., University of California, San Francisco
  • David Williams, Ph.D., M.P.H Harvard School of Public Health and Harvard University
  • Steven Woolf, M.D., M.P.H., Virginia Commonwealth University

When: Tuesday, April 26, 2011, from 12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET

Webinar Series: This webinar is the second in a three-part series exploring how conditions where we live, learn, work and play affect our health. Mark your calendar for the third and final segment of the series:
