By University at Buffalo Law School
Welcome to UBLaw Conversations, a production of University at Buffalo
Law School and the Baldy Center for Law and Social Policy. Today is
February 26, 2009, and I'm James Milles, Professor of Law.
Sandy Lane is chair of the Syracuse University Department of Health and Wellness and a
professor of social work. She holds a joint appointment with the SUNY
Upstate Medical University, where she is a research professor with the
Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. A medical anthropologist and
epidemiologist, her research focuses on the impact of racial, ethnic,
and gender disadvantage on maternal, child, and family health in urban
areas of the United States and the Middle East. She received an R.N.
diploma from the New England Baptist Hospital School of Nursing; a
bachelor?s degree in North African Studies, a master?s degree in
anthropology, and a master of public health in epidemiology, all from
the University of California, Berkeley; and a Ph.D. in medical
anthropology from the University of California, San Francisco and the
University of California, Berkeley. Professor Lane is interviewed here by Bernadette Hoppe, an attorney and adjunct faculty member in the UB Department of Global Gender Studies.
