School of Public Health Assistant Professor Andrew Fenelon (Health Services Administration) is interviewed in an article about his new research showing that people in the South, and particularly South Carolina, have life expectancies that are three to four years shorter than other parts of the country. “Over time, there’s an increasing concentration of worse-off states in the South. They start the period bad and end up abysmal,” he told The Greenville News. “Especially for women in some of the Southern states, we don’t see a lot of improvement since the 1980s.”
