Biography 

Candace Evans is a first-generation college student and chronic/invisible illness activist broadly interested in health, social theory, and inequality/stratification. She holds a Master's Degree in Applied Sociology from the University of Massachusetts Boston, where she served as both a teaching and research assistant for a variety of classes and projects. Her current project explores the tensions in expertise between complex chronic illness patients and the Western Medical Complex, and the politics of responsibility these tensions invoke.
