Medicine in the Mountains: Health and Development in High Asia

Posted on Updated on


If you happen to be in Berlin this week, join the Tibet Colloquim highlighting ‘Medicine in the Mountains’ and issues around health and development in High Asia on 25 June 2014. Drs. Sienna Craig and Kenneth Bauer will discuss their forthcoming monograph, Medicine in the Drawing from decades of field experience in the Himalayas and Tibet. Both will highlight case studies on health care in high altitude but also emphasise the role of local cultural histories and ideals – an issue which the Biodiversity and Community Health (BaCH) Initiative is addressing globally.
