Glenn Beamer, PhD
Department of Interprofessional Health Sciences and Health Administration
I am a political scientist who focuses on the connections among living wage policies, community development and population health.
In the Master of Healthcare Administration program, I teach the healthcare accounting and health finance courses. I enjoy working with students on these topics and the broader political economy of healthcare.
