About the Center on Health, Risk, and Society

The Center on Health, Risk, and Society seeks to build an interdisciplinary community of scholars at American University interested in conducting research on the social dimensions of health and health-related risks, especially on their roots in social inequality, and on structural interventions aimed at addressing them. It will provide a range of resources in support of the development of externally funded research in these areas, both within the United States and globally. More...
