Prior to joining the full-time faculty in 2007, Mary Lutz conducted social welfare and health services research on a wide array of issues, including child welfare, medically underserved areas, incarceration, clinical depression, substance abuse, AIDS, unemployment, immigration, and complementary medicine.
Teaching part-time for many years as an Assistant Professor for the Center for Worker Education, and working in agencies throughout New York City, she is the lead author of 5 articles in peer-reviewed journals, 7 published research reports, 15 published conference presentations, a monograph, book chapter, and co-author of one book, Face of the Nation 1987.
Dr. Lutz received a BA (’73), a doctorate (DSW, ’87), and MPH (’92) from Columbia University, and an MS (’77) from Hunter College. Her doctoral dissertation examined women’s employment status and health care access. Her postdoctoral fellowship in psychiatric epidemiology produced an experiment that successfully measured environmental influences on survey response bias. Dr. Lutz’s unflagging interests in both these areas have led her to working with others for health care as a human right and in finding creative ways to advocate against stigma.
