Link Established Between
Higher Education And Better Health

 Nationwide  -- Studies asserted direct links between socioeconomic status (education attainment, career and income) and poor health outcomes.

 Within Black and other minority communities, less than optional health outcomes are much more pronounced compared to their White counterparts. In other words, low socioeconomic statuses leads to much more chronic illnesses and untimely death in minority populations. The United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reported that Black adults were 80 percent more likely than non-Hispanic white adults to have been diagnosed with diabetes by a doctor (HHS 2016). Though such reports are grim but there is a silver lining.

Investigations as completed by Dr. Anika Thrower show opportunities to reverse poor health outcomes. This starts with ensuring we understand the value in higher education and passing that knowledge along to our youth.
