Scholar in Equity, Health & Law
Daniel is a visiting associate professor in the CU Department of Family Medicine and in the Center for Bioethics and Humanities. He is trained as an attorney, historian of medicine, and public health ethicist. His current research agenda in law, policy and bioethics focuses on the social determinants of health, public health policy and chronic illness, health inequalities, and stigma. Additionally, he maintains an active research program in the history of medicine, and focuses primarily on two topics in 19th century America: the history of medical imaging (especially x-rays) and the history of pain without lesion. His doctoral dissertation addressed the under-treatment of pain in the United States, and he has been actively writing, teaching and speaking on the subject of chronic pain since 2000.
