Negotiating Structural Vulnerability in Cancer Control: Contemporary Challenges for Applied Anthropology seminar participantsShort SeminarNegotiating Structural Vulnerability in Cancer Control: Contemporary Challenges for Applied AnthropologyThis seminar focused on cancer control research among structurally vulnerable populations, shifting the analytic focus from the individual to the individual in her social, economic, and cultural contexts to offer insight into such “bottom line” concerns as lowering the cost of care and improving health outcomes, while also addressing, and potentially ameliorating, the effects of social inequality.
Global Health in Times of ViolenceSAR Press PublicationGlobal Health in Times of ViolenceOver 24 million people have died in these conflicts, and millions more suffered illness and injury.

By investigating the fields of violence that define our modern world, the authors are able to provide alternative global health paradigms that can be used to develop more effective policies and programs.
