Aging, Place, and Health: A Global Perspective examines the interplay of biological, social, and environmental factors affecting the health and well-being of aging individuals, their families, and communities. With a strong interdisciplinary focus, this book provides a clear, coherent structure to address the diversity of topics in this increasingly vital field.

With contributions from leading experts in the field of aging and public health, the book explores key areas in the epidemiology of aging. Each chapter addresses an important topic in aging from survival, to function, depression, and health conditions.  The final chapters translate aging research into practice and policy.

Aging, Place, and Health: A Global Perspective follows an ecological model, recognizing that patterns of health and well-being are due to a dynamic interplay of biological, behavioral, social, and environmental factors that play out over the life course of individuals, families, neighborhoods, and communities
