Ana Antunes

Former News Coordinator

Country: Portugal
External Title: PhD candidate in Global Public Health

Background

My background is Medical Anthropology, which allowed me to simultaneously develop skills in social and biological sciences and to explore how complex factors at the social, cultural economical and political spheres interact with our basic biology mechanisms shaping health and illness. I’m mainly interested in Global Mental Health, Social Determinants of Health and Applied Medical Anthropology.

Why GHNGN

I believe that Global Health is mainly about making the right (and often uncomfortable) question and to join a group of motivated young leaders with such distinct experiences is an amazing opportunity to so.
