Young People, Uncertainty, and Imagined Futures in Khayelitsha

My time in Cape Town this summer was truly incredible. The Town Two community welcomed me with open arms, and I learned so much about township life, the research process, and myself in my time there. Through my research, I was able to see the world from another point of view and learned to talk across layers of difference. I am so thankful to have had this experience.

Understanding Occupational Health among Informal Agricultural Workers in Gujarat, India

This experience has instilled in me an appreciation for the paramount importance of personal relationships to successful grassroots public health work. Simple, informal conversations undertaken in a spirit of friendliness and open exchange often yielded some of our most valuable and rewarding insights. The sevikas, or community health workers, were our models; their inexhaustible commitment to the health and well-being of their families, friends and neighbors was unrivaled. – Patrick Robinson
