Dr. Latham’s research interests include health and aging with an emphasis on functional health as well as chronic disease epidemiology. Her dissertation examined activity limitations and modifiable risk factors among late midlife adults. Other recent projects have explored progressive and catastrophic disability trajectories. Much of Latham’s research focuses on identifying and understanding health disparities among older adults.
