A special conference on social genomics, co-hosted by the Center for Demography of Health and Aging (CDHA) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, the Initiative in Social Genomics, and the Center for the Economics of Human Development at the University of Chicago, will be held from November 18 to November 19. The conference will cover topics ranging from child development, health behaviors, life cycle decision making, intergenerational transmission of socioeconomic status, and ethical implications of combining genetics with social science.

More details on this event to come as they are solidified. 

The interdisciplinary research program at CDHA is designed to create links between social demography, biomedical, and epidemiological research on health and aging. Research focuses on five major themes: aging and the life course; biodemography; determinants of disparities of aging trajectories; health economics and health services research; and impacts of place on aging processes.
