Sociology of Health

The Health Working Group (HWG) is a collaborative community at UCLA that welcomes scholars to share and discuss research related to health, medicine, and biotechnology. Our members share an interest in medical sociology, but also span diverse interests in organizations, race/ethnicity, global studies, ethnography, gender, and demography. The goal of the HWG is to facilitate a variety of projects from students and faculty through engagement with one another's work (in any stage of completion)To date, the HWG has served as a supportive community for discussions of dissertation proposals, fellowship applications, thesis papers, journal articles, conference presentations, data segments and preliminary analyses for UCLA students, guest speakers, and visiting scholars.
