Dr. Benjamin C. Amick III has long been attracted to research. He became focused on issues of health and safety as an undergraduate, when he developed a specific interest in work stress and cardiovascular disease. “I thought it was an important and understudied area,” he says. Today, he is Chair of the Department of Health Policy & Management. Dr. Amick specializes in integrating organizational sciences, ergonomics and epidemiology to understand the role of labor markets in health and wellness, illness and disease in society. “I’m interested in working with our prevention and policy partners to build labor markets that promote health and create a competitive advantage,” he says.
