David Coomes, a PhD student in the Department of Epidemiology and CSDE T32 Fellow (UW) will join CSDE to discuss his work examining the role of migration in the rural mortality penalty. The rural mortality penalty, in which rural areas have higher age-adjusted mortality rates as compared to more urban areas, has emerged over the last few decades in the US. Previous research has focused on characteristics of rural areas, such as access to healthcare,

CSDE Affiliate and Science Core PI Dan Eisenberg (Anthropology) was quoted in an article by Chen Ly in the New Scientist, commenting on a new study that suggests ADHD evolved in hunter-gatherer societies to improve humans’ foraging ability. Eisenberg says “determining exactly how behaviours associated with ADHD may have been adaptive within past environments is difficult, and these results are compelling in that they demonstrate measurable differences in the foraging strategies employed by individuals with and without ADHD”.
