The department welcomes Dayle B. DeLancey to the department. Her interests and research include 19th- and 20th-c. history and ethics of African-American health experiences, U.S. public health (esp. vaccination and disaster relief campaigns), medical technologies (esp. vaccines and pharmaceuticals), the public understanding of medicine (esp. fears, myths, and rumors), and race and gender in medicine. Explorations of discourse and print culture inform much of her work. Welcome Dayle.
