About the speaker

Claire Wendland, MD, PhD, FACOG
Professor, Departments of Anthropology and Obstetrics & Gynecology, University of Wisconsin-Madison

 

Dr. Wendland worked in the Navajo area of the Indian Health Service both at Chinle Comprehensive Health Care Facility and at Gallup Indian Medical Center, where she was Chief of the Ob-Gyn Department, before turning to medical anthropology. Her areas of active research and teaching are primarily related to international health and to health care among underserved populations, with a particular interest in maternal mortality. Her current research project in Malawi explores explanations for maternal death in a context in which mortality rates are very high while the uncertainties surrounding any given death are substantial.

Event Sponsors: Co-sponsored by the Global Health Center at the Institute for Public Health, the Department of Anthropology and the Africa Initiative and organized by the Global Health Student Advisory Committee.
