Medical Anthropology and Mission

Together with Hsaw Reh and Hugh Truempi, I contributed a chapter to Giants' Footprints (2021), edited by Grodź, Michael and Schroeder, to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the Anthropos Institute. Our chapter, "Medical Anthropology and Mission: Health, Well-Being and Pastoral Ministry among Resettled Karenni Refugees in Omaha", discusses the centrality of research in medical anthropology among the institute's members and the synergy that exists between ministry and research, illustrated by exploratory research into the meaning and use of water among the Karenni in Omaha.
