Watson Fellowship: Info session and Virtual Visit from Jocelyn Velasquez Baez ’23, Watson Fellow

At this event, we will introduce the Watson Fellowship and hear directly from Jocelyn Velasquez Baez ’23, who will be Zooming in from her world travels as a Watson Fellow. Her project, “Ethical Understandings of Traditional Medicine,” focuses on how traditional medicine is perceived within indigenous and ethnic communities. Engaging with traditional medicine practitioners, knowledge keepers, and community members around the world, Jocelyn is spending a year exploring their understandings of traditional medicine, and its future in the wider healthcare system.

Hybrid event: in person in Fisk 201, the Fries Center for Global Studies, or join remotely via Zoom. Pizza & salad will be served.
