Health of Africa
In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Memphis, TN Vol. 6), graduate student Susannah Acuff talks about her journey from pre-med to anthropology. She began by shadowing her grandfather, a physician, in free clinics, and examined the cultural opinions and use of health care and insurance, which eventually led her to Africa, where she examined alternative models for health insurance, instead of the for-profit model found in the United States.
