Researchers have found non-white Hispanics live longer and have better health outcomes than people from other ethnic and cultural groups. That’s despite a variety of socio-economic factors that would typically indicate otherwise. University of Arizona psychologist John Ruiz talks about his lab’s investigation into this phenomenon.

John Ruiz spoke with Tim Swindle, professor emeritus in Astronomy at the University of Arizona.
