Dr. Keith Wailoo, Professor of History at Rutgers, will be presenting a lecture entitled, "Over-Prescribed / Under-Medicated: The History and Cultural Politics of Pain Medicine in America." Dr. Wailoo is Director of the Center for Race and Ethnicity at Rutgers and Martin Luther King, Jr. Professor of History at Rutgers University. His work focuses principally on health care politics, the ethnic and racial relations of medicine, and the ways scientific and technological understandings have interacted with politics, society, and culture to shape health experiences, disease disparities, and social responses to disease in the 20th century and into the 21st century. He is an award-winning author and editor of several books, including The Troubled Dream of Genetic Medicine: Ethnicity and Innovation in Tay-Sachs, Cystic Fibrosis, and Sickle Cell Disease (2006), A Death Retold: Jesica Santillan, The Bungled Transplant, and Paradoxes of Medical Citizenship (2006), Dying in the City of the Blues: Sickle Cell Anemia and the Politics of Race and Health (2001), and Drawing Blood: Technology and Disease Identity in Twentieth-Century America (1997).
