The Ohio State University at Newark

Amy Welling Gregg

I am a Social Justice Historian. My experience with teaching undergraduates includes both traditional in the classroom and online courses and with teaching small groups of students to large lecture settings. My research exists at the intersection of American history, medicine, and pharmacy, and I explore the implications of this in a variety of matters concerning social justice, equality, and progression as it connects to undergraduate students of all disciplines today.

As a full-time lecturer at The Ohio State University-Newark, it is especially exciting to be able to teach two of my favorite courses, "History of Public Health and Medicine" and "Introduction to the Humanities." It is a pleasure teaching in my fields and, at my Ph.D. alma mater.

Recently, I was awarded a 2019 Curtis Gates Lloyd Fellowship from The Lloyd Library and Museum. Thanks to the fellowship's generous financial support, I will move my dissertation to publication format.

Areas of Expertise

My doctoral research involved the history of American Medicine and Pharmacy and how the process of professionalization of those disciplines impacted medicinal practices by American Indians and African Americans, women, and practitioners from lower classes of Caucasians in America. My work is founded upon a consciousness of the importance of diversity, the moral acceptance of the “other,” and social justice.
