Social Inequalities in Health Care Treatment
Janet Shim, University of California, San Francisco

In this April 2013 seminar, Visiting Scholar Janet Shim discusses her ongoing sociological examination of epidemiology, specifically how epidemiologists conceptualize and use race, socioeconomic status, and sex/gender in their work, and how lay people think about the effects of such social differences on their health.

Shim is an Assistant Professor of Sociology and Nursing at UCSF. She received her Master in Public Policy at Harvard University and her Ph.D. in Sociology at UCSF.
