Unmasking Zip Codes: Life Expectancy Reveals Truth

Mounting evidence has shown that zip codes impact our life expectancy and quality of life more than our genetic code. Gaps in life expectancy persist across many cities, towns, ZIP codes and neighborhoods and vary dramatically based on gender, race and ethnicity. For instance, transgender women of color have a life expectancy of 35 years old compared to white cisgender women’s 81.3 years? This eludes that there is more correlating life expectancy than zip codes for populations more vulnerable to bias, as well as trauma and violence. Explore how life expectancy in America compares with life expectancies around the world and discuss the resources and solutions available to help everyone live a longer, healthier life.
