Health Status, Nutrition, and the Politics of Democracy
Dr. Steven Peterson, Professor of Politics and Public Affairs Emeritus at Penn State Harrisburg explores the impact of health status and nutrition, two biosocial variables, on the comparative politics of democratization. The hypothesis: states with higher levels of health and nutrition will be more likely to be democratic and display characteristics of a democratic society.
Penn State Harrisburg School of Public Affairs' Eastgate Center Series aims to bring innovative research, expert lectures, and panel discussions to a broader audience. Located in downtown Harrisburg, the Eastgate Center is an ideal location for students, professionals, and anyone interested to learn more about current themes in politics, government, and society.
