ACHS Spring 2022 Meeting

Back in Hartford! In person! May 10!

I’m speaking!

U.S. Mortality Trends Through the Pandemic – COVID and non-COVID
From March 2020 and continuing through 2022, mortality trends have taken a wild ride in the U.S. In this session, we will trace some of the changes in mortality through various dimensions, by time, age groups, and cause of death. Of course, the main driver of mortality changes has been COVID, causing the highest increases in mortality rates seen since the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918. However, there have been several other causes of death that have seen outsized effects through the pandemic, some of which may be due to lack of treatment during prioritizing COVID, some of which may be due to other effects of lockdown and other pandemic policies, and others which may persist even after COVID effects wane.

We have to expose ourselves to others’ cooties to hear you speak?!?!

Oh no! I speak for free online all the time!

Maybe I can do a live event later this year. Let’s pick a topic.


Just a reminder…
