I am currently teaching part-time in the Sociology Department.  I continue to use custom-published texts that I have written for my classes.  My primary research interests continue to involve employment and healthcare resources issues.  With colleagues in sociology and public health at WKU, I am developing a research project that will study variance in mortality among vulnerable elders in the counties that make up the I-65 corridor, between Louisville, Kentucky and Nashville, Tennessee.  My most recent publications have appeared in The International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry and Research in the Sociology of Health Care.


PhD, University of Illinois at Urbana - 1970.
