MacMurray professor publishes health article
December 4, 2012
Joe Squillace, assistant professor and chair of the division of social and behavioral sciences, has published an article in the latest online issue of the Missouri Electronic Journal of Sociology.
The article, “Rural Dental Clinics' Impact on Travel Distances for Medicaid Children,” argues that the expansion of public health clinic services and the development of new clinic locations may be lowering the overall travel distances for rural families. Clinics were found to have “hub” properties, improving the geographic availability of care to rural children that may have otherwise had to travel long distances.
The Missouri Electronic Journal of Sociology, a peer-reviewed publication, was developed to publish scholarly research that focuses on sociology in the state of Missouri.
