In February, attendees will hear from Usama Bilal, MD, PhD, MPH, an assistant professor in the Urban Health Collaborative and the department of Epidemiology & Biostatistics at Dornsife.

In this talk, he will summarize his work describing inequalities in longevity in the US and in Latin America. He will review both spatial descriptions of the inequalities between and within cities, as well as new work describing within-area lifespan variations.
