3/17/10: Grandmothers and the Human Species

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – Wednesday, Doug sits down with University of Utah Anthropology professor Kristen Hawkes. Hawkes - who is a member of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences - is regarded for her "grandmother hypothesis." The theory argues that although women long out-live their child-bearing years, the key role grandmothers play in providing for youngsters helps us understand human longevity. Doug talks to Kristen Hawkes about grandmothers and how they helped us succeed as a species.
