Population Health in America (Sociology in the Twenty-First Century #5) (Paperback)
Inviting students to delve into population health trends and disparities, demographers Robert Hummer and Erin Hamilton provide an easily understandable historical and contemporary portrait of U.S. population health. Perfect for courses such as population health, medical or health sociology, social epidemiology, health disparities, demography, and others, as well as for academic researchers and lay persons interested in better understanding the overall health of the country, Population Health in America also challenges students, academics, and the public to understand current health policy priorities and to ask whether considerably different directions are needed.
Robert A. Hummer is the Howard Odum Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Fellow of the Carolina Population Center at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
Erin R. Hamilton is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Davis.
