Panel Discussion: Caring and Understanding in a Global Health Context

A Crisis of Caring: The Humanities and Our Health | April 11–14, 2022

How do we approach health crises as they affect people from widely disparate cultures? How do we account for the challenges presented by differences in technology and infrastructure? Panelists will explore how national, international, colonial, technological, and economic forces have shaped the ways in which we conceptualize and respond to global health issues.
