Meet Jaida Samudra, our newest faculty member! Jaida is a medical anthropologist who comes to us via University of Hawaii at Manoa (we hope she survives the change in weather!) Jaida is particularly interested in alternative systems of healing, patients articulations of illness and healing, and social and health issues arising from biological determinism. She is also interested in examining social settings that promote democracy, peace, and creativity. Welcome aboard, Jaida!
