Quoted: Ellen Meara on Mortality Rate for White Women

“There are people for whom life expectancy is falling—and that's happening at a time where everywhere else and for every other group we're seeing all these amazing gains in survival,” says Dartmouth’s Ellen Meara in an NPR story about a new report on mortality rates for adults in the United States.

Meara is a professor at the The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice.
