February 19SAWYER SEMINAR CHRONICITY AND SYSTEMS OF CARE IN GHANAIAN COMMUNITIES IN EUROPE
THE UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS SCHOOL OF MEDICINE—WICHITA, ROBERTS AMPHITHEATER; 1010 NORTH KANSAS STREET, WICHITA, KS 67214
Ama de-Graft Aikins (University College London) discusses her research on “chronicity”—the complexity of addressing disease conditions that progress slowly, are of long duration, and cause debility—among Ghanaian communities living in London, Amsterdam, and Berlin. She demonstrates the ways that place, migration history, and generational status intersect with chronic illness in these communities and the implications for long-term care.
