Research Network for Health and Society

Politics, culture, social systems and economics are some of the major interconnected factors that help define health care and attitudes about health in societies. Through this network, our scholars and practitioners are exploring these complex topics, while advancing policy-relevant research and promoting community engagement in this area.

The Research Network for Health and Society is a collaboration between the Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center and the Department of Global and Sociocultural Studies.
