Kevin Moos

University of California San Francisco

    Kevin Andrew Moos is a Ph.D. student in History of Health Sciences at the University of California, San Francisco. His interests include the economic and business history of health and medicine, the history of health economics, and the history of globalization. His current project, "The Gift Exchange: Richard Titmuss, Economics, and the Global Blood Industry, 1970-1980," focuses on global developments in blood banking and blood products that blurred the lines between private enterprise and non-profit administration in healthcare and questioned the medical and economic efficiency of incentive- based distribution systems. Looking at the history of healthcare both in the United States and internationally, the thesis also aims to study the relationship between medicine as a business and medicine as a cultural phenomenon.
