James. S. House

University of Michigan

House will complete a book suggesting that the resolution to the nation’s health care “crisis” is to institute policies designed to improve overall population health rather than policies that control the supply and cost of health care. As part of this analysis, he will examine social disparities in health over the adult life course, especially by socioeconomic status, and describe the limits of current and past efforts to reform health care.
