Shannon Monnat, Lerner Chair for Public Health Promotion, was interviewed for the PolitiFact article "Overdoses, suicide driving drop in U.S. life expectancy, presidential candidate Andrew Yang says." According to Monnat, the recent decline in life expectancy "is due almost entirely" to increases in overdoses and suicides. "Although the declines are small, they are unprecedented, and they are signals that there is a serious well-being crisis in the U.S.," she says. 04/04/19
