Throughout my educational and professional careers, I have been continually struck by the myriad ways in which the social determinants of health affect access to health care, length of life, and quality of life for all Americans. I am honored to work at an organization that promotes social justice by conducting research aimed at exposing and addressing the issues at the heart of health inequity in the United States.
