Looking for Panelist for AHA 2024 in San Francisco - Oral History of care

I am trying to put together a last minute (due February 15th) proposal for the AHA in January 2024 in San Francisco. My co-presenter and I both work in the Oral History of care/caretakers. I work on the lived experiences of New York Nurse Practitioners in the early days of the profession (1970s-1990s), while my co-presenter works on the Houseboat Community in Sausalito, California (1960s-1970s). We are looking for a third presenter who would be focused on either healthcare or other forms of care/caring.

Labor History in health care

Good evening,

Can anyone recommend books or articles about labor history in U.S. health care?  Besides Leon Fink’s “Upheaval in the Quiet Zone” I am at a loss for additional material.  I am particularly interested in manufacturing unions that organized health care workers who worked in close proximity to their “traditional” members.  

Thank you,

John Lepley
