Read the Washington Post article "The hidden inequality of who dies in car crashes" featuring new research by EBOH Associate Professors Dr. Sam Harper and Dr. Erin Strumpf and Research Associate Thomas Charters.

"New research by Sam Harper, Thomas J. Charters and Erin C. Strumpf, published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, finds that improvements in road safety since the 1990s haven't been evenly shared.
