David K. Jones is an Associate Professor in the Department of Health Law, Policy and Management at Boston University’s School of Public Health. He was the inaugural Editor-in-Chief of www.PublicHealthPost.org, an online forum for public health policy launched in November 2016. David earned a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in Health Services, Organizations, and Policy. He holds a Master of Arts (MA) in Political Science from the University of Michigan, a Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH) from the University of North Carolina, and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) from McGill University.

His research examines the politics of health reform and the social determinants of health. His recent book "Exchange Politics: Opposing Obamacare in Battleground States" (Oxford University Press 2017) focuses on how states made decisions around what type of health insurance exchange to establish as part of the Affordable Care Act’s implementation. He is working on a new book using Photovoice to examine the social determinants of health in the Mississippi Delta, re-tracing Robert Kennedy's steps in the region. He also studies Medicaid, CHIP, and health reform in France. He has been cited in the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal among other places. He testified before the Michigan Legislature’s House Health Policy Committee during their consideration of a health insurance exchange.

He has been awarded AUPHA’s John D. Thompson Prize for Young Investigators, AcademyHealth’s Outstanding Dissertation Award, and the BU School of Public Health Excellence in Teaching Award. Prior to graduate school he interned in the Idaho Legislature, the Canadian House of Commons, and Congressman Charlie Rangel’s district office in Harlem, NY. David is originally from New York City where he worked as a pretzel vendor at Yankee Stadium.
