American Sociological Association: Amélie Quesnell-Vallée Award Statement
Amélie Quesnell-Vallée Award Statement
In “Pathways from Status Attainment to Adult Health,” Amélie Quesnell-Vallée explores how money can buy health, especially in countries like the United States that lack universal health insurance coverage. Most notably, Quesnell-Vallée shows that in the United States there is a cumulative but diminishing effect of financial resources on adult health outcomes, with access to health insurance serving as a main mechanism through which this effect is generated.
