Harvard Professor Dr. Reginald Tucker-Seeley is globally respected for his ground breaking research in the field of socioeconomic disparities in health and health behavior. On Monday, March 6th, 2017, the Harvard Clubs of Broward and Palm Beach counties, along with All-Ivy+ members from across South Florida, will come together to hear Dr. Tucker share his latest research. This is the "can't miss" event of the season where everyone will enjoy riveting conversation and camaraderie along with hors d'oeuvres and drinks.
Dr Tucker-Seeley will be discussing how traditional socioeconomic measures are an insufficient barometer to fully understand how a family's economic standing affects their overall health. Using cancer as an example, Dr. Tucker-Seeley illustrates how cancer care, even for family's with health insurance, can impose a significant financial burden and substantially interrupt household spending patterns which leads to additional distress. Drawing on preliminary results from two of his studies (the "Money-Health Connection Study" and the "Financial Resources and Treatment Study"), Dr. Tucker-Seeley will discuss open questions on how and when to measure and intervene on household financial well-being to improve population health and reduce disparities in health.
