State of Health: Pleasure and Politics in Venezuelan Health Care under Chávez

I am an anthropologist studying people’s experiences of health care in Latin America, the Caribbean, and the United States. My research and teaching interests include public health, the body, mental illness, homelessness, and aging; the anthropology of citizenship and political activism; and Latin American and Caribbean studies. For over ten years, I have conducted ethnographic research in urban Venezuela, Cuba, and the United States.

I am an assistant professor of anthropology at Saint Louis University, where I teach  medical and cultural anthropology.
