Challenges, Choices and Context: Health Behaviors in Eastern Europe and Eurasia

Fri, March 23, 2007

Organized by Professors Michele Rivkin Fish (University of North Carolina) and Cynthia Buckley (Texas), the conference focuses upon exploring the ways in which cultural, political and economic factors shape health behaviors and health related practices within Eastern Europe and Eurasia. Through workshop meetings and an afternoon public forum on Friday March 23rd, an international and interdisciplinary group of 17 scholars will engage in critical dialogues concerning the way in which health choices are structured, constrained, and enabled by forces beyond the individual, in an attempt to contextualize and structure assessments of health "crises" within the region. For more information, contact CREEES at 471-7782 or visit the conference webpage.
