Assessing the Association Between Income Inequality and Health


On this episode of Managed Care Cast, Hui Zheng, PhD, discusses his recent research on the association between childhood income inequality and declining adult health.

Income inequality is a hot topic in politics today, and while the rising role of social determinants of health is being recognized in care delivery and research, a new study published in Social Science & Medicine aimed to determine to what extent income gaps are associated with Americans’ declining health.

On this episode of Managed Care Cast, we speak with Hui Zheng, PhD, an associate professor in the Department of Sociology at Ohio State University and co-author of “Rising Childhood Income Inequality and Declining Americans’ Health.”

The American Journal of Managed Care® sat down with Zheng to learn more about how income inequality has shifted throughout the 20th and 21st centuries and the potential implications of this shift, along with some solutions to the problem.
