Many people have more than one chronic health problem. These diseases add up, and the combined effect is more important than the effect of any one problem alone. Using data from the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA), this webinar from Dr. Philip St. John examines the relationship between disease combinations and if they are more common in older people, or in people with lower income and education.
Dr. St. John is an associate professor and head of geriatric medicine in the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Manitoba. He is an affiliate of the Centre on Aging at the University of Manitoba, and is the co-lead investigator of the CLSA Manitoba site. His research interests include rural health and epidemiology of cognitive impairment and depression.
