Unpacking Armenian Studies

Nov 26, 2018

Health care research usually falls outside mainstream Armenian Studies, yet, any focus on contemporary issues of development in Armenia must address the complexities of health care delivery. Dr. Shant Shekherdimian is a pediatric surgeon who has researched Armenia’s and Karabakh’s health care systems – policy, service delivery, education, quality and needs – and his conclusions are surprising. He also focuses on the supply and demand of health care services from outside Armenia – from Diaspora and volunteer organizations. Again, his conclusions are surprising.

Join Salpi Ghazarian, Director, USC Institute of Armenian Studies and Dr. Shekherdimian in this episode of Unpacking Armenian Studies.
