On Wednesday Feb 1 Social Epi Cluster Faculty member Esteban Calvo, will give a talk entitled, “From snapshots to movies: Labor-force sequences and health trajectories in old age”.
When a continuous motion is represented as a series of snapshots of statuses or transitions, patterns become fuzzy and difficult to perceive. Departing from a snapshot approach, this presentation analyzes the relationship between labor-force sequences and health trajectories in old age. Regardless of disadvantages experienced earlier in the life course, promotion of healthier labor-force sequences throughout the 60s can postpone the decline in motor and cognitive functioning, as well as delay the onset of chronic diseases and progression towards multi morbidity. His talk will take place in the Hammer Building, room LL-201 from 12:00-1:00pm. (701 West 168th St).
