• Goin’ on Sabbatical

    A bit of bookkeeping.

    I’m proud to contribute to TIE–no issues or complaints of any kind. But to be a baller here, you’ve really got to bring your “A” game.  The rest of my life isn’t positioning me to consistently do that at the Austin/Aaron/Adrianna/Bill/Kevin/et al level that TIE readers deserve. So I’m taking a sabbatical.

    Like many academics on sabbatical, I may drop in on the occasional meeting to offer unsolicited advice.  You’ll still see me on the internets in various ways, mainly to further my book project and my efforts to show human faces affected by disability and health policy. Austin and I have some TIE-U ideas for my teaching, too.

    My TIE colleagues have assembled one of the best health policy sites around.  So stay tuned.  I certainly will.


    • Sad to hear this, but if the result is a Harold Pollack health policy book that would be well worth it.

    • Your writing will be missed, but I look forward to the book (what’s the topic?). Hopefully we’ll still hear from you via Twitter.

    • Thanks man

    • I’ve always appreciated your posts, Harold. As the father of a child with autism, I’ve found them both enlightening and sometimes scary.

      It’s a great service you do in telling the stories of how our health system does and does not serve people with disabilities. I look forward to reading more from you, in whatever form that takes.

      Take care,


    • I’ll miss your perspective. I’ve always found it added to the broad context of TIE.
