Historian and philosopher Wilhelm Dilthey remarked, "If there were a science of human beings it would be anthropology that aims at understanding the totality of experience through structural context." Anthropology, the study of culture and humankind, is a discipline that is central to understanding and participating in Global Health. This webinar will explore what anthropology is and how it applies to global health.
This webinar will feature Shannon Marquez, PhD, MEng from Drexel University.
