View Author Bio
Aday, Lu Ann : University of Texas
Lu Ann Aday is professor of Behavioral Sciences and Management and Policy Sciences at the University of Texas, Houston, School of Public Health. Her previous books include Designing and Conducting Health Surveys: Second Edition (Jossey-Bass, 1996) and Evaluating the Health Care System: Second Edition (1998).
"This updated and extended portrait of America's most vulnerable populations provides an extraordinary amount of important information for researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and students. Aday reliably presents the challenges in reducing risk and improving health in the years ahead."
-- David Mechanic, director, Institute for Health, Health Care Policy, and Aging Research, Rutgers University
"As we bask in the longest economic boom in history and an unprecedented accumulation of wealth, Aday relentlessly reminds us of the dire health needs of our vulnerable populations. This new edition will be as valuable as the first was to researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and ethicists."
-- Mary Ruggie, professor, J. F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
"Lu Ann Aday has done it again. The second edition of At Risk in America will be an indispensable resource for health care providers, public health officials, and health services researchers, and it should be taken especially seriously by anyone concerned with health care policy in the United States."
-- Bruce C. Vladeck, professor of health policy and geriatrics, and director, Institute for Medicare Practice, Mount Sinai School of Medicine
