History 100: Documenting the History of Health Care in California

The development and history of public health in California since World War II is documented largely from the perspective of policy making and institutional formation. Health provides an essential component to understanding the economic development of the state, as well as the cultural and political dynamics of demographic change. Innovations in public health, most famously and perhaps most notoriously the prepaid health plan, emerged in California during and after World War II. California models for health care delivery then spread to other states and even to other parts of the world. More historical work is needed in recovering understandings of health and the experience of health care.

Students in this class conducted oral history interviews over the course of the semester and wrote the following papers:
"Issues in Epidemiology and the Korean Women's Health Project" by Margaret Hwang

"The Role of the Nurse Practitioner: Past, Present, and Future" by Emily Rouhas; based on oral history interviews with nurse practitioners Dies and Mary

"An Interview with Norma Satten" by Priya Pandurangi; based on oral history interviews with Norma Satten

"Negotiating Change: An Inside Look at Kaiser's Shift in Labor Relations" based on oral history interviews with Bill Sokol

"The Personality of Social Change" by Kathy Sear; based on oral history interviews with Torm Nompraseurt
