Pamela Nadash is an Associate Professor of Gerontology at University of Massachusetts, Boston, in the McCormack School of Policy & Global Studies. Her work centers on policies that enable people with long term care needs to access the supportive and health services they need. This includes looking cross-nationally at different countries’ long term care financing and service delivery systems, as well as studying variations in policies and practices among states in the US. One area of special interest is managed long-term care and supportive housing; she has also been heavily involved in participant-directed services. This latter focus has extended to an examination of how market-oriented policies work for older as well as younger people in a range of markets, including Medicare markets and the new health insurance exchanges. Another focus of research is the use of resident and family satisfaction surveys in nursing homes.
She earned her Ph.D. in Public Health and Political Science from Columbia University and has a master’s in political theory from Oxford University and an undergraduate degree in philosophy from Bryn Mawr College. Her work has been published in Health Affairs, Health Services Research, The Gerontologist, and The Milbank Quarterly. She teaches policy courses in the Gerontology PhD program and in the Management of Aging Services program.
