The Council on Nursing & Anthropology is a co-sponsor for the Society for Applied Anthropology (SfAA) meetings and invites abstracts (sessions, papers and posters) for the Program of the 77th Annual Meeting in Santa Fe, NM, March 28-April 1, 2017.The program theme is “Trails, Traditions, and New Directions.”
The Council on Nursing and Anthropology (CONAA) is an organization for those interested in both health care and anthropology. We meet each year at the Society for Applied Anthropology (SfAA)meetings in the spring. For the past three decades, the Council on Nursing and Anthropology (CONAA) has gathered nurse-anthropologists, nurses and other health care professionals, anthropologists and other health social scientists and friends for scholarly and evidence-based practice initiatives.
Common interests of CONAA members are basic and applied health research, improved health care for vulnerable populations, and encouraging cultural and social justice content in health care education. Of the current membership, about half are nurse-anthropologists. Others include those with graduate degrees in nursing with a specialty of trans-cultural or cross-cultural nursing or with a minor in anthropology, as well as anthropologists who teach in schools of nursing or other clinical fields. CONAA holds yearly business meetings at SfAA followed by informal receptions for networking and mutual support.
