Description

Please join Catherine Lucey, MD, Executive Vice Dean, Vice Dean for Education for this special panel on addiction medicine and the opioid crisis, on Tuesday, October 23, at 5:00pm in N217. This panel is open to the entire UCSF community. It is co-sponsored by the Dept. of Anthropology, History and Social Medicine and the Department of Psychiatry.

The panel is FREE but please register here for the 5:00pm dinner so we can order enough food.

Kelly Knight, PhD (Assoc. Prof. Medical Anthropology, DAHSM, UCSF) will present data from long-term research projects conducted with pregnant women and chronic non-cancer pain patients in primary care, emphasizing the relationship between clinical care and patients’ structural vulnerabilities (e.g. poverty, racism and housing instability).

Helena Hansen MD, PhD (Assoc. Prof. Psychiatry/Medical Anthropology, NYU) will address the ways that racial and class politics surrounding white middle class narcotics use have shaped the marketing, regulation and demographic distribution of opioids, the symbolism of opioid addiction in the popular media, and resulting drug policies.
