Jessica Adler’s research focuses on the history of U.S. health, social, and welfare policy, and the impact of war on citizens’ health. Her current work centers on the origins and evolution of the U.S. veterans’ health system – now the nation’s largest integrated health care system. It traces changing expectations and perceptions of health care in the United States, and illuminates how politics and social circumstances shape the structure, implementation, and experience of federal entitlement programs.
