Title:  "Complex Institutions:  The Contingent Effects of Incarceration on State Health Outcomes"

Professor Schnittker is interested in the social, biological, cultural, and institutional determinants of health.  He has recently explored the intersection of genes and environments in shaping well-being, as well as the relationship between incarceration and the health of current and former inmates.  Like other medical sociologists, he define "health" broadly and has explored outcomes as diverse as depression, disability, disease, and death.
