Jennifer Karas Montez, professor of sociology and Gerald B. Cramer Faculty Scholar of Aging Studies, was interviewed for the BuzzFeed News article "US Life Expectancy Has Dropped — Again."  According to Karas Montez, drops in life expectancy among people with little education, first reported a decade ago, have finally grown severe enough to impact national numbers.
