Socioeconomic Status and Risk of Diabetes-Related Mortality in the U.S. (No Audio)

Despite decades of public health and medical interventions, diabetes has remained one of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States. Surprisingly, little is known about the extent of socioeconomic differences in diabetes-related mortality, due in large part to the paucity of data sources which contain health, mortality, as well as robust socioeconomic information. This webcast will discuss an approach to address some of the previous data limitations by examining socioeconomic differences in diabetes-related mortality. The webcast presentation will focus on a recent study published in Public Health Reports (volume 125-3; pp 377-88) that uses nationally representative data sources and demonstrates the socioeconomic gradient in diabetes-related mortality in the U.S.
