NHC: Caring and Understanding in a Global Health Context

April 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Caring and Understanding in a Global Health Context

How do we approach health crises as they affect people from widely disparate cultures? How do we account for the challenges presented by differences in technology and infrastructure? Panelists will explore how national, international, colonial, technological, and economic forces have shaped the ways in which we conceptualize and respond to global health issues.

  • Adria L. Imada, Professor of History, University of California, Irvine
  • John Mckiernan-Gonzalez, Director of the Center for the Study of the Southwest, Jerome and Catherine Supple Professor of Southwestern Studies, and Associate Professor of History, Texas State University
