Happy New Year! We kick off 2012 in journal club this week with the article that was awarded the Society for Medical Anthropology’s Polgar Prize last month at the AAA meetings in Montreal:
Horton, S., & Barker, J. C. (2010). Stigmatized biologies: Examining the cumulative effects of oral health disparities for Mexican American farmworker children Medical Anthropology Quarterly, 24(2), 199–219.
The Polgar Prize is given annually to the article deemed to be the best paper published in Medical Anthropology Quarterly in the most recent volume year. So expect good things! For a bit more context, see the press releases issued by the authors’ institutions, CU-Denver and UCSF.
Journal club will meet, as usual, on Friday at 11:45 a.m. – 12:35 p.m. in the Medical Anthropology Lab (TUR B103).
