"While life expectancy has continued to improve in large highly educated urban hubs, life expectancy declines have been much more pronounced in former industrial cities, much of Appalachia, and in many small towns and cities across America’s heartland," says Shannon Monnat, associate professor of sociology and Lerner Chair for Public Health Promotion. She was interviewed for the BuzzFeed News article "US Life Expectancy Has Finally Stopped Declining." 01/30/20
