Atheendar Venkataramani (PSC) co-authored research published in JAMA Network Open that examines the relationship between state-level eviction moratoriums and the risk of individuals being diagnosed with COVID-19. Venkataramani was quoted in Marketplace discussing the obstacles that some people with preexisting health conditions or who live in low-income areas experience; "Some patients will say, ‘I have to work three jobs and I have to take the subway. I have no choice, I don’t have the option to not work.'"
Alison Buttenheim (PSC) was quoted in Five Thirty Eight about the effectiveness and complexity of vaccine mandates in school settings. Buttenheim has conducted research on vaccination acceptance and refusal rates in the United States and, in particular, how policy changes in California have impacted school entry vaccine mandates.
