The Politics of Health
The Culture of Medicine Club discussion series looks at the relationship between ethics, culture, and medicine, and awareness about cultural competence in health-related professions.
Scott L. Greer, Ph.D., a political scientist, does research on the consequences for health policy and the welfare state of federalism, decentralization, and European integration. He has done research on health politics and policy in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, France, Germany and Spain as well as EU politics and policy. Before coming to Michigan, he taught at the University of London. He currently directs a two-year project on the consequences for health services and political participation of elections to health boards in Scotland, is editing two books (on decentralization in health care with Joan Costa I Font of the LSE and on EU public health policy, with Paulette Kurzer of the University of Arizona), and is writing a book with Margitta Maetzke of Johannes Kepler University Linz on the role of the state in English, German and American health care.
