The Medical Anthropology Forum is a forum for researchers, students and all those interested in the study of health and illness in different cultural and social settings. In the forum senior students and scholars present their current research projects. The aim is to discuss and analyze new theories and themes of Medical Anthropology and to learn more about international developments in the area of culture, health and health care. Everybody who is interested is welcome!
