Conversations About Our Scholarly Lives

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Monday Feb 18, 2013
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Julie Dolan, Political Science, will present "Women Serving Women? The Role of Gender Consciousness in Delivering Healthcare to Female Veterans."  This new research project engages an ongoing debate in the public administration literature: do public servants, such as physicians working for the Department of Veterans' Affairs (VA), serve their clientele impartially, or do they sometimes take on an advocacy role to benefit certain segments of their clientele? Female veterans are the fastest growing segment of today's population of Veterans, yet the VA is struggling to provide optimal care to women seeking care in their facilities. My project explores the role that VA physicians' play in closing the gender gap in quality care. All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be served.
