Social and psychological influences make a tremendous impact on how well people handle illness. Dr. Lisa Burkeman, authority on the social influences on disease and head of the department of Health and Social Behavior at the Harvard School of Public Health, highlights two of the most significant areas of influence: socioeconomic status and social networking or community integration. Studies show that while isolation increases risk, social integration confers up to three times the likelihood of survival, making healthy family ties and community involvement of great protective benefit. Join host Dr. Howard Torman as we gain perspective on the treatments and attitudes of two brave cancer survivors.
