“TB Patient Care Pathway and Stigma” Brown Bag with Dr. Mary Ann Ladia
March 29, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Dr. Mary Ann J. Ladia will be presenting her talk “TB Patient Care Pathway and Stigma” at noon in Baker Hall 155.
Using surveys, ethnography, and secondary data, this presentation highlights the Philippine national tuberculosis (TB) program from the establishment of sanitoria at the end of 19th and early 20th centuries to the present. The age-old understanding of the disease transmission continues to play a major role in the patient care pathway despite the discovery of scientific methods of TB control. Due to stigmatized health condition, Filipinos affected by TB shift care from public to private clinics and move away from their hometown to seek care.
This brown bag presentation is sponsored by the Department of Anthropology of the College of Social Science, Michigan State University.
