Research Abstract
Research focuses on the relationship between the creation of medical scientific knowledge on complex diseases and social inequity. This research interest in the social context of disease is a central question in medical anthropology and has significant implications for health care and treatments available for historically disadvantaged communities. Most recent book, "Making the Mexican Diabetic”—analyzes how diabetes has come to be understood in the epidemiological community as a “minority” disease.
