Annika Barron is working under Professor Vania Smith-Oka in the Culture of Medicine Lab, a group focused on understanding medical anthropology. Throughout the year, she will aid with projects focused on understanding obstetric violence, the use and misuse of Cesarean incisions, and the social factors that influence medical institutions and their effect on marginalized populations. The group has a specific interest in understanding maternal healthcare in Mexico, but many research objectives are applicable to maternal healthcare and the medical field worldwide.
