Death of a Child: Race, Risk, and Parents’ Health

Debra Umberson’s research focuses on social factors that influence population health with a particular emphasis on aging and life course change, stress and social ties, and gender, sexuality, and racial variation in health disparities. Her recent research, supported by the National Institute on Aging, examines how marital relationships affect health-related behavior and health care, and how the processes vary across gay, lesbian, and heterosexual unions.  In her current research,  also supported by NIA, she focuses on racial/ethnic    differences in exposure to the death of  family members across the life course and the implications for long-term health and mortality disparities.
