The marked improvement of health and longevity for Californians, as well as the nation, has brought an increase in life expectancy of almost 30 years for the period between 1900 and 2000. Despite this progress, considerable differences persist across racial and ethnic groups. Factors such as socioeconomic status and educational attainment as well as health factors contribute to this disparity. Lunch is provided for this event.
