Bio: Chris Bosley is a PhD student in Sociology at the University of Buffalo, studying medical sociology. His interests lie in studying healthcare providers, healthcare delivery systems, and healthcare policy. These interests are motivated by Chris' 18 years of experience as a paramedic and firefighter. Specifically, Chris studies how the occupational environment affects Emergency Medical Service worker mental and physical health, what motivates people with non-emergent medical complaints to seek care in the Emergency Department, and how public policy affects 9-1-1 usage for EMS requests. In addition to studying at UB, Chris has taught Introduction to Sociology at Hilbert College in Hamburg, NY.
