“Welcome to Susan E. Lederer”
Susan E. Lederer, our new department chair, comes to us from Yale University. She may have been the first medical history graduate student here at the UW-Madison to have taken a field in bioethics (with Dan Wikler who also served on her dissertation committee). We are very happy to have Sue back and look forward to her interest in and contributions to medical curriculum reform and the power of a radical union of medicine and public health.
