Conference Program Chairs

Jennifer Karas Montez

Jennifer Karas Montez is a Professor of Sociology, the Gerald B. Cramer Faculty Scholar in Aging Studies, and Co-Director of the Policy, Place, and Population Health Lab at Syracuse University. The main focus of her research is explaining the troubling trends and growing inequalities in how healthy and long Americans live. Much of her work over the past decade has examined why those outcomes are particularly worrisome for women, for people without a college degree, and for people living in states in the South and Midwest. In her current work, she is investigating how the polarizing policy environment at the US state level has contributed to the trends and inequalities. Read more

Shannon M. Monnat

Shannon Monnat is Associate Professor of Sociology, the Lerner Chair for Public Health Promotion, and the Co-Director of the Policy, Place, and Population Health Lab at Syracuse University. Monnat’s research interests broadly fall at the intersection of place, public policy, and population health. A common theme binding much of her research is a concern for rural people and places. Much of her work over the past several years has focused on geographic differences in opioid and other drug-related mortality rates, particularly trying to understand the economic, social, and policy factors that are driving these spatial differences.
