I’m trying to learn for my Health & Medical class and I’m stuck. Can you help?
Read “Religious Involvement and Adult Mortality in the United States” by Hummer, et al., 2004, located in the Reading & Study folder for this module/week. Discuss the following points in your thread. Review the Discussion Board Instructions before posting your thread.
- What do the authors’ say? Summarize the findings of this review article as they pertain to religious attendance and mortality.
- What do you say? Describe the proximal and distal influences that might explain decreased mortality with increased religious activity?
- What do you say? Do the findings hold equally true for public vs. private religious activity? Suggest reasons to explain why this may or may not be true.
