Pathways Linking Education to Health: A substantial number of epidemiological and social science research studies have consistently found a moderate to strong association between educational attainment and a wide variety of illnesses, health problems, health behaviors and indices of overall health. There is, however, considerably less research on the mechanisms and pathways by which education - particularly for non-health education - influences health. For this RFA, education refers to the comprehensive formal instruction that occurs in any level of schooling from kindergarten or before through graduate studies and includes the social and behavioral processes that are combined with formal instruction in educational environments. The goal of this RFA is to increase the level and diversity of research directed at elucidating the causal pathways and mechanisms that may underlie the association between education and health. Better scientific understanding of the causal pathways between education and health could lead to additional and improved prevention and therapeutic intervention strategies for important health problems. In order to better understand these pathways, validation of specific measures of abilities crucial to educational attainment, such as level of cognitive or language skills, may be needed. Further exploration is needed of intervening neuro- or psychobiological mechanisms, such as impact on frontal lobe structure or function or psychological characteristics, and how these relate to a significant health outcome or important health related behavior or expected outcome. In addition, it will be necessary to explore what components or dimensions of education are important to health. The association or pathway between formal education and either important health behaviors or diseases may not be causal. Instead it may reflect the influence of confounding or co-existing determinants or may be bi-directional. Research considered responsive to this solicitation may involve pilot studies, new analyses of existing data, small-scale intervention studies or innovative approaches tailored for the study hypotheses. It may involve new teams of multidisciplinary teams (e.g., education specialists, developmental psychologist, neurobiologists, and economists). However, This RFA is not directed at studies which limit their focus to the impact of specific health education courses or programs on health behaviors; rather, the focus is on the impact of the more general education experiences.
