My name is Jake Hall, and I am a senior in the Interdisciplinary Studies program. I usually just say Public Health since doing so represents better what I am studying and want to do, as well as the fact most people have never heard of IDS. I took Physical and Cultural Anthropology last fall, and took Social and Cultural Theory last spring. I am taking this class because Public Health is impact as much by the culture of those being observed as anything else, and I’m excised to take a class looking at the intersectionality of Health and Culture. My picture is a Squirtle because Squirtle is my favorite Pokemon (I have a tattoo of one on my calf) and Pokemon Go recently dropped, so its obviously holding all of my attention. I caught a vulpix and a Squirtle working on this post even!
