New Book!

"Lazy, Crazy, and Disgusting: Stigma and the Undoing of Global Health" is launching in November 19, 2019. The book reveals how much of the global health work we do unwittingly create highly damaging social stigmas. Alex and I also have some ideas about how to fix it.

"This is a magnificent, highly engaging, and ethnographically informed examination of the fateful intersection of stigma and public health." Merrill Singer, University of Connecticut.

"Filled at every level with grounded examples that contradict perceived wisdom, the book is a model of critical thinking."Thomas Leatherman,  U Mass.

"The approach here is highly original and important." Peter Brown, Emory.

"Interesting, timely, and lucid", Andrea Wiley, Indiana U.

"[T]wo eminent scholars of stigma have provided a deeply engaging road map" Alexander Tsai, Harvard Medical School.
