Assistant Professor Stark urges students to become more involved in the government health care debate

In an opinion piece for Inside Higher Ed, Laura Stark, assistant professor of sociology, assistant professor of science in society, discusses how recent and pending college graduates are deeply affected by the current machinations over health care in Congress, but have been curiously silent as a group, especially compared with their overwhelming involvement in the election last year. Stark’s students Suzanna Hirsch ’10, Samantha Hodges ’11, Gianna Palmer ’10, and Kim Segall ’10, contributed to the piece.
