Jessica Roberts, the Director of the Health Law and Policy Institute and a George Butler Research Professor at the University of Houston Law Center, returns to the pod. In her research, Jessica has offered compelling and innovative perspectives on a range of issues in heatlh care research, finance, privacy, and ethics.

Jessica’s book on “Health-ism,” co-authored with friend of the pod Elizabeth Weeks Leonard, is forthcoming from Cambridge University Press. We begin by discussing health discrimination before, during, and after the ACA. Then, we discuss Jessica’s take (admirably articulated in a recent Michigan Law Review book review) on the nudging at the center of healthcare’s version of behavioral economics.
