1 Scopus citations


This chapter describes the development of anthropologically-based innovations in health professional education in Syracuse, New York, and the extension of these innovations to a number of universities in upstate New York. The innovations included bringing together an action anthropological model of community based research with university-based work on the social determinants of health, and integrating these into health professional education. The chapter describes the development of the Community Action Research and Education (CARE) model, the use of the National Academies of Science framework for integrating the social determinant of health into health professional education, and efforts to suffuse both into the work of educators in upstate New York.
