Horton chairing Global Health Insurance Reform Task Force
Assistant professor of Anthropology, Sarah Horton, has been chairing a task force for the Society for Medical Anthropology on Global Health Insurance Reform, and they have just posted a statement. The statement is part of the Critical Anthropology of Global Health's "Take a Stand" initiative, in which the CAGH (a special interest group of the SMA) forms a task force to spark discussion among medical anthropologists on a particular issue of pressing global health concern. The task force is collecting statements on health insurance reforms in various regions across the globe, potentially creating an edited volume from the statements, and organizing conference panels. Assistant research professor, Jean Scandlyn, in both anthropology and health and behavioral sciences, contributed one of the briefs cited.
