A Healthier Understanding of Society
Health doesn’t end at biology - there are many societal and environmental factors that can play a crucial role. The University of Kentucky will be introducing a new Health, Society, and Populations program that will be focused on approaching health illness from a social and structural standpoint in order to recognize the diverse factors that influence well being and available health services. In this podcast, Erin Koch, a professor in the Department of Anthropology, and Carrie Oser, a professor in the Department of Sociology, discuss the new program, its potential impact on the study of health and medicine, and what they are most excited for as co-directors.
