The next Global Issues Colloquium event, “What you should know about Venezuelan health care under Chávez: A Medical Anthropologist’s Perspective,” will take place at 7:30 p.m. March 25 on Zoom.

This presentation will feature Dr. Amy Cooper, assistant professor of anthropology, at Saint Louis University. Cooper will discuss her in-depth research on one of the most important shifts in Venezuelan society, the transformation of its health care system. From her research, Cooper published the book “State of Health: Pleasure and Politics in Venezuelan Health Care under Chávez” which is based on ethnographic study conducted in Caracas between 2006-2009.
