Acting Graduate Chair, Sociology
PhD, Sociology, Florida State University
Dr. Shuey is a sociologist who examines health inequality over the life course. She is currently a co-principal investigator in a Canadian Institutes of Health Research funded project that examines trajectories of health over the life course and across generations. Her work underscores the importance of studying health longitudinally as a salient manifestation of social inequality resulting from patterns of advantage and disadvantage that are reproduced and transmitted across generations within families.
