soc phd programs #9: health

Previous installments: strat/work, education, org studiesculture, urban, soc psych, demography, political sociology.

This is easy, since Indiana is usually regarded as a leader in medical sociology & health. The following folks do health in one way or another: Pam Jackson (mental health, race & health), Scott Long (aging), Jane McLeod (mental health, life course), Eliza Pavalko (aging, life course, health care politics), Bernice Pescosolido (suicide, mental health, networks), Quincy Stewart (race, mortality, demography), Peggy Thoits (mental health, life course). I also count in some ways – I’ve publised on health & networks and my RWJ works focuses on data analysis in health contexts and the organizational context of medical research.

Add other health heavy programs in the comments.

  1. Two years ago, the ASA Med Soc section made a collection of grad programs with a health focus; you can find it here:

    In addition to Indiana, I would highlight Brown, Brandeis, Duke, Ohio State, UC Boulder, UT-Austin, Michigan, and Vanderbilt.

    And, to be totally self-promoting, Rice is starting a grad program in the fall of 2011 and one focus will be population health; we have me (family, race, and health), Bridget Gorman (race and health), and our new hire Justin Denney (mortality, health behaviors, and family).
