Families are dynamic, heterogeneous entities that vary by size and age, gender, and generational compositions, and in political, social, and technological contexts. Thus, families can affect the health of its members in complex, indirect, and potentially overlapping ways. This chapter presents a broad overview of the micro- and macro-level processes by which families affect the health of individuals and highlights issues that are likely to be salient over the next several decades.
