Please join us for an exciting informal chat session with our special guest Dr. Jennifer J. Carroll!
Dr. Jennifer J. Carroll is an anthropologist and public health scholar who studies drug use and infectious disease prevention for drug users in the US and in Ukraine. She is currently a post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Medicine at Brown University, located in Providence, Rhode Island. She has been visiting and conducting research in Ukraine since 2007. In 2012, she visited Crimea to learn about drug treatment services being offered there. Many of the people she spoke to have died since the Russian annexation, due to restrictions in Russian health care policy and their affect on those who were in recovery from substance dependence. Dr. Carroll also stood on the Maidan from 2013-2014 and has given public lectures across the United States about these events. Her photos of the protests have been displayed in the Ukrainian Institute of America in New York City. She is currently writing a book about these events and their impact on public health in Ukraine.
