September 6, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm
Megan Reynolds (Sociology, University of Utah)
Title: Area-level healthcare barriers and immigrant well-being.
Bio: Megan Reynolds is Assistant Professor in the Sociology Department at the University of Utah. Her interest in health is motivated by a view of health as an important measure of life chances that is influenced heavily by political, as well as social, factors. Drawing on theories of power relations, institutions, social policy, gender and immigration, Prof. Reynolds uses cross-sectional and longitudinal data within and across countries at both the individual and country levels to illuminate the processes whereby different social and political contexts affect health. Informed by writings in the areas of political sociology, medical sociology, work & labor, and stratification/inequality, Prof. Reynolds' work has been published in outlets like Social Forces, the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, and Social Science and Medicine.
