Project Scope
Project Description

"Shame: How the Coronavirus Response Failed America's Heartland" describes what happened in a rural Midwestern town when national and state policy failed to address public health measures in America's coronavirus crisis. The book chronicles a local public health effort during the summer of 2020, while coronavirus spiked and masks became political. It is a political and social commentary about political division and social conflict amidst one of America's most divisive periods in history through a national crisis.

Translational Perspective

The work deconstructs what happened when policy failed; hopefully, policy will not fail so drastically again, in the next global pandemic.
