defined as between 40-65
-Literature on health and mid life is generally focused on the beginning of bodily
decline, when hormone levels drop, physiological functions begin to fail, mental
acuity wanes and the resulting inevitable deterioration of health occurs for both men

family history, and cumulative exposure to risk factors

-Population health approach focuses on the entire population and recognizes the
importance of investigating the health disparities in populations
-Approach supports upstream investment in health, bases decisions on evidence and
sees citizens as part of the process
Life course as an approach to aging
-Life course- sociological term used to describe life stages in social and cultural
contexts
-Acknowledges the fluidity of the interaction between people and their environment
and the social and cultural contexts of biological change
-There is tendency for professionals and people in everyday lives to place emphasis
on the existence of a set of structurally defined, but culturally experienced life stages
-The differences in experience of mid life becomes especially salient when one
examines how different cohorts experience this life stage
-Without an understanding of the range of social and cultural perspectives of people
in the professional and popular sectors, efforts aimed at well being, health and
prevention will continue to be less than optimal
Life choices and life chances
-Traditional life style based health advice focuses on a micro level and individual
people, and assumes that those living an unhealthy lifestyle are doing so by choice
but lack of formal education effects literacy, low income forces food choices, housing
and employment environments and other factors place individuals and their agency
in a context of social and structural institutions
-Life choices are shaped by life chances
-The life course access to material resources and the social and cultural environments
in which we live throughout earlier years influence our health and well being
significantly at mid life
-Early access to nutrition, education, employment and knowledge make a difference
to health outcomes in midlife
