Health & Societies

Health & Societies brings together Swarthmore staff, students, and faculty who are interested in the cultural, ethical, economic, social, and political questions that relate to health on local, regional, and global scales. The central goal of the Health & Societies group is to highlight the important intersection of health and social justice, and the vital contributions that the social sciences and humanities make on understanding and addressing human health—past and present. This initiative is directed by Associate Professor of Anthropology Christy Schuetze.
