Dr. Patel describes the emergence of the “risk factor” approach and the challenges of implementing a more community-level orientation to health and disease that resulted from it. In particular, she explores the changing political economy of federally funded research, of academic medical centers, of medical specialization, and of communities themselves and how they impact the viability and success of community-level approaches to health and disease today.
We welcome and encourage everyone to attend.
