Doctors treat patients across the globe with the latest technology to fight global pandemics. But how do scientists treat the human behind the patient? With special behind-the-scenes access to AMNH’s Countdown To Zero exhibit, you will explore the ways social scientists, microbiologists, and medical professionals work together to cure disease. Using the tools on anthropology, you will uncover how history, geography, and our own culture can affect how we treat malaria, HIV, guinea worm and other tropical diseases in the developing world, and what you can do to stop their spread.
Formerly called Medical Anthropology
