The Open Society Foundations awarded a large research grant to Seth Holmes for his new project, "Social Medicine Case Series: Bringing Structural Frameworks to Global Public Health and Health Care." Holmes, Co-Chair of ISSI’s Berkeley Center for Social Medicine and Associate Professor of Public Health and Medical Anthropology, and co-PI Scott Stonington, Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Internal Medicine at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, will commission and edit a series of case studies to communicate the macro structures affecting the health and well-being of patients in ways that will influence the programs, projects, and care provided by global health professionals. Each article will be co-authored by a clinician who will describe aspects of a clinical case and by a social medicine scholar who will analyze the case to bring out social structural insights vital to the understanding and practice of health care.
