"For 20 years, that “something” about being poor and getting sick has
preoccupied Nancy Krieger '80, Ph.D., professor of society, human

also preoccupied her older brother, James Krieger '78, M.D., chief of
the epidemiology, planning, and evaluation unit at Public
Health-Seattle and King County, his local public-health authority.
Independent of each other, the Krieger siblings have transformed that
fixation into the leading edge of public-health theory and practice."
