Abstract or Description

My senior honors thesis examines two public health issues opiate overdose and hepatitis C and explores the socioeconomic barriers barring patients from access to care as well as the emerging forms of treatment that are making care increasingly accessible In formulating my argument I assert that traditional public health measures have failed to take the contextual factors of care into account for patients who come from limited-resource settings and that there needs to be a greater emphasis on how to best implement health technologies to ensure their success in a real world environment.
