Accepting new graduate students interested in food insecurity, mental health, and international work
I am hard at work on a 3-site study of the relationships between food insecurity and mental health in Brazil, India, and Haiti. In the upcoming academic year, I am seeking a new Master's and/or Doctoral student for the University of Alabama's program in biocultural medical anthropology with interests in nutritional anthropology, mental health, global health, and chronic diseases who as part of their training will have the opportunity to assist with data collection on this project in Brazil. Some familiarity with Brazilian Portuguese is a must! Please visit our department's website to learn more about our graduate programs in anthropology and the application process.
Dr. Jo Weaver is a medical anthropologist who specializes in the study of chronic diseases, mental health, and nutrition in India and Brazil.
