Event Description

Rosie Mae Henson, MPH, Department of Health Management and Policy, will present "Geographic and social proximities to the United States and fatal overdose rate trends in Mexican cities: 2005-2021."

The US-Mexico border region has long had higher drug use rates compared to other regions in Mexico, which have remained some of the lowest rates in the world. Stronger social ties to the United States have also been associated with higher drug use and misuse among Mexicans in Mexico. This ecological dissertation traces the epidemiological history of drug misuse and overdose in Mexico to-date, describes current trends in fatal overdose rates in Mexico, and tests the interacting effects of geographic and social proximities to the United States on fatal overdose rates in Mexican cities. Transnational policy implications of the findings will be discussed.

Chair: Brent Langellier, PhD, MA Committee: Usama Bilal, PhD, MPH, MD, Tonatiuh Barrientos-Gutierrez, MD, PhD, Jan Eberth, PhD, Pricila Mullachery, PhD, MPH, MS, DDS
