Marty Otañez, Associate Professor of Anthropology, has published "Digital Storytelling: Using First-Person Videos about Food in Research and Advocacy," in Food Health: Nutrition, Technology and Public Health, editors Janet Chrzan and John Brett, Berghahn Books. Also, in March Otañez presented "Bioethics in Cannabis Research and Creative Work" at the Cannabis Research and History Conference at UC San Francisco organized by Denver-based Cannabis Outreach and Education Network, and at the Denver City Forum in Littleton. According to a news story in the Littleton Independent, Otañez encourages cannabis workers to assert their labor rights, such as accessing high quality health care and unionizing. According to Otañez, "We can force the cannabis sector to be accountable" to practices that are harmful to workers' health and safety.
