Describe worker health in terms of morbidity or mortality and the burden of disease among workers through measures of health-related quality of life (HRQL) such as quality-adjusted life years (QALYs). Discuss a preliminary sense of HRQL disparities among worker groups and gender using estimated QALYs. Explain quality-adjusted life expectancy by sector and gender and quantify, both numerically and in monetary terms, the incremental differences across sectors thus providing a new perspective on health disparities among U.S. workers.
Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I am the Principal Investigator on federally funded grants to conduct economic analyses of public health interventions. Among my scientific interests has been the analysis of costs and benefits of interventions treating women offenders with substance use disorder and estimating health-related quality of life among racial groups and by occupation.
