Susan Alberts

Robert F. Durden Professor of Biology and Evolutionary Anthropology, Duke University

The social environment—both in early life and adulthood—has major effects on human health and survival. But how and why does the social environment get “under the skin” to also affect our physical health? Susan Alberts pursues this question by studying wild baboons in Kenya. Baboons, like humans, evolved as savannah dwellers. They rely on social relationships to solve problems and—like humans—their lives depend on these relationships. Alberts will discuss how the balance between the challenges and opportunities of social life affects health and belonging in both humans and baboons.
