Abstract: Despite a perception that the scholarship and practice of public service and medicine transcend race and racism, it is imperative to situate both in their wider social context in order to capture the implications of both issues in analysis. The health gap that exists among racial groups in the US is an important consequence of social inequities that exist in the healthcare system. The disparity in health outcome and opportunity is so widespread, in fact, that the United States Department of Health and Human Services has declared the elimination of such disparities as one of the major goals of the nation in its Healthy People 2010 Initiative. These gaps are seen in overall health, health care service utilization, and access to treatment and prevention. This paper offers a meta-analysis of the competing explanations for health disparities and a framework for assessing the causes of inequity and analyzing the policies aimed at improving social equity in healthcare. Illustrates a rationale for examining the the implementation of equity in healthcare and the epistemology of health disparity that drives policy formulation. Also addressed is the extent to which the policy objectives and capabilities of the policy-makers are aligned.

"When Equal Rights Promote Unequal Outcomes: The differential effects of equal rights legislation on liberals’ and conservatives’ justification and attribution of outcome inequality" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Annual Scientific Meeting of the International Society of Political Psychology, Ergife Palace Hotel, Rome, Italy, Jul 04, 2014 <Not Available>. 2019-11-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p730285_index.html>

Abstract: Legal scholars (e.g. Scheingold, 2004) have suggested that a focus on equal rights legislation can be used to justify and perpetuate distributive inequalities. This paper examines this proposition drawing on research on procedural justice (Tyler, 2006) and system justification theory (Jost, Banaji & Nosek, 1994). We hypothesized that, due to heightened trait motivation to justify their social system, conservatives would be more likely than liberals to draw on equal rights information to justify distributive inequalities. To examine this proposition we manipulated the perceived strength of equal rights legislation in the U.S. workplace and focused on the justification of gender disparities. Results show that when they were led to believe that equal rights legislation regarding the workplace has been more versus less successfully implemented, conservatives were more likely to blame women (versus the system) for workplace inequalities, and were more likely to endorse the gender status quo, including distributive inequality, in broader U.S. society. Liberals, on the other hand, did not change their attribution of inequality or gender system endorsement when given the impression that equal rights legislation had been implemented more versus less effectively. Implications for theories of justice and system justification are discussed.

Abstract: Insurance has been found to be a contributing factor to decision making for “grey areas” where it is unclear whether or not caesarean section is an appropriate course of action or not (Keeler 1993). This behavior could explain the high rate of caesarean section, since both specialist presence has become more dominant in the medical labor force, and since medical compensation has become more convoluted in recent years. Past studies have shown that women who are on Medicaid are less likely to have a caesarean section than those with employer provided insurance (Keeler 1993). A reason for this, could simply be that the economic opportunity costs of administering a caesarean section become irrelevant with a fixed level of compensation for the OB GYN -regardless of the course of treatment (as is the case with Medicaid). It is worth examining the correlation between different forms of medical compensation with outcome birthing treatment for a few key reasons: (1) this is a very critical issue affecting women’s health and fertility, (2) this is a signal for larger issues concerning the correlation between medical care and compensation, and (3) this issue challenges the validity of expert knowledge of medical practitioners. I propose to conduct an examination of births resulting in caesarean section by method of payment (public insurance, private insurance and uninsured). This will be done using national 2009 Medical Expenditure Survey (MEPS) data to create a logit model predicting of having a caesarean section within differentiated insurance pools.

Abstract: In order to obtain a picture of how story events and story presentation factors of suspense work together in film, in this study a story events factor (Outcome Value) was directly compared with a story presentation factor (Outcome Delay) as to their influences on experienced suspense in four different film genres. 124 subjects took part in a 2 (Outcome Value) X 2 (Outcome Delay) between-subjects X 4 (film genre) within-subjects experimental design. The results reveal that, as expected, film genre is a major determinant factor of experienced suspense: Outcome Value significantly influenced experienced suspense in the two action oriented films (a thriller and a horror), whereas Outcome Delay significantly influenced experienced suspense in the two character oriented films (a classic romance and an art house romance). Counter to expectations there was no film in which both factors had a significant effect on suspense.
