About Professor Schlesinger
Dr. Schlesinger is Professor of Health Policy and a fellow at the Institution for Social and Policy Studies at Yale University and past editor of the Journal of Health Policy, Politics, and Law. Dr. Schlesinger’s research explores the determinants of public opinion about health and social policy, the influence of bounded rationality on medical consumers, the role of nonprofit organizations in American medicine. His recent research initiatives include (a) studying how the changing availability of information on clinicians’ practices alters patients’ choices among doctors, (b) assessing public perceptions of and responses to economic insecurity, (c) explaining the recent rapid expansion in the scope of newborn screening among American states, and (d) understanding why particular collective responses are seen as more or less legitimate for addressing the spread of obesity among Americans. He has consulted to a half dozen federal agencies, several dozen state and local governments, and more than a score of nonprofit organizations concerned with health and social policy. His favored sports include uncompetitive volleyball and unlighted table tennis. More information about Dr. Schlesinger here.
