Her latest article, on maternal identity is forthcoming in Sociological Focus. Since coming to UWO, she created and has regularly taught Sociology of Gender and Sociology of the Family.

About Juyeon

Son received her Master of Arts in Women’s Studies from Rutgers University at New Brunswick in 1998, her Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Oregon in 2007, and joined the department in 2007. Dr. Son is a medical sociologist and she has published articles that examine issues such as health service utilization and immigrant incorporation, postpartum care, health disparities, transnationalism, and technology.Her current research interests are aging, elderly care, and end-of-life decision making processes along the lines of class, race and gender categories. She has also been a principal investigator of a project that examines the effectiveness of new comprehensive sexual health curriculum in Oshkosh Area School District in collaboration with the public health at Winnebago County in Wisconsin. This study was funded by the CommunityAcademic Partnership Fund at the School of Medicine and Public Health, University of Wisconsin in Madison. She is a mixed method researcher as she is trained in both quantitative and qualitative research methods.She is originally from Seoul, Korea but has lived in the U.S. for almost the half of her life time. Wisconsin is the first state she spent her first couple of years in the U.S. as an international student in the 90s, and thus has been her second home in her heart. For some miraculous reasons, she came back to Wisconsin as a faculty. She must love Wisconsinites! She adores the time she can spend with her two children and her husband.
