Anthropologist psychiatrist sees global health through a cultural prism
Wed, 22 Feb 2017 04:25:30 +0800 | UCLA Newsroom: Health Sciences
As a pre-med major at UC San Diego studying biochemistry, Ippolytos Kalofonos discovered his future career while listening to a guest lecturer at an undergraduate seminar.Here was a field that wove together his interests in health, medicine and social context, he learned after listening to the medical anthropologist.
