The Schroeder Center for Health Policy is pleased to host a talk on "Social Safety Nets for Food and Medical Care" by Chris Howard, Pamela C. Harriman Professor of Government and Public Policy. In his new book, Who Cares: The Social Safety Net in America, Professor Howard provides the first comprehensive map of the entire social safety net, both public and private, and analyzes a wide range of social policies. His talk to the William & Mary community will focus specifically on the social safety nets of food and medical care in the United States and the gaps that remain in providing basic levels of both. His recently published book covers other needs as well, including income, housing, and daily care.
Professor Howard, who has worked at William & Mary since 1993, specializes in the history and politics of U.S. social policy. He is the author of three other books and co-editor of The Oxford Handbook of U.S. Social Policy; he has also written numerous journal articles and book chapters. He is a member of the National Academy of Social Insurance and the Scholars Strategy Network. He has won a campus-wide teaching award and an Outstanding Faculty Award from the state of Virginia. Professor Howard was a History major at Duke University and earned his Ph.D. in Political Science from MIT.
