Nancy E. Adler
Nancy Adler’s earlier research examined the utility of decision models for understanding health behaviours with particular focus on reproductive health. This work identified both determinants of consequences of unwanted pregnancy. Her current work examines the pathways from socioeconomic status (SES) to health. As director of the MacArthur Foundation Research Network on SES and Health, she coordinates research spanning social, psychological and biological mechanisms by which SES influences health. At the network, she has focused on the role of subjective social status in health.
