1. The Medical Anthropology Network warmly invites expressions of interest from recent Anthropology graduates, and those whose work involves a Canada-based or focused approach in particular, to join Dr. Varley as Co-Chair of the Network, and work with her to ensure that the Network reaches Canadian medical anthropologists working on issues of national as well as global relevance.  Inquiries and requests for consideration may be directed to Dr. Michel Bouchard, President of the Canadian Anthropology Society (michel.bouchard@unbc.ca) by May 1, 2016.

 2. In the interests of exploring the diversity of our work, the CMA plans on presenting a series of research overviews of medical anthropologists in Canada in coming issues of ‘Culture’. Anthropologists who would like to be profiled in future issues are invited to email brief summaries (250-300 words) of their recent or ongoing work and achievements to Dr. Emma Varley (varleye@brandonu.ca).

The CASCA Medical Anthropology Network is made up of a broad range of anthropologists working in the areas of science, technology and medicine who study, interpret, challenge, disrupt and contribute to evidence and best practices across diverse landscapes of health, illness, sickness, infection, abilities and disease in Canada and around the world. Individuals, institutions and organizations wishing to subscribe and/or submit items to the listserv should email: CMA-NETWORK@LISTSERV.DAL.CA
