The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) has published a new article by Dr. Victor R. Fuchs entitled “Black Gains in Life Expectancy”. The article explains how much the life expectancy of Black Americans has increased. The article goes on to detail the leading factors which contributed in closing the gap between Black life expectancy and White life expectancy between the years of 1995 and 2014.
