Social Epidemiology: It's the Neighborhood!
This interesting session will focus on social epidemiology;. Specific presentations will discuss: the environmental and social origins of obesity and other chronic diseases, the socioeconomic level of the neighborhood and ischemic heart disease risk, whether neighborhood effects are robust over time, the association of community social capital and recurrence of acute coronary syndrome, and marginalization and attrition in longitudinal research.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the session, the participant (learner) in this session will be able to: 1. Recognize that obesity and other chronic diseases may have both environmental and social origins 2. Identify indicators of marginality in vulnerable populations 3. Identify different structural characteristics of the residential context that are associated with risk of ischemic heart disease 4. Define the difference between contemporaneous and lagged neighborhood effects 5. Discuss the pathways through which community social capital may affect cardiovascular outcomes
