Notes I am an African American woman, trained in the history of science and the history of medicine. I have pioneered the field of Global Health History as a way to fuse the insights of genetics, bioarchaeology, and history to investigate the history of the world's major infectious diseases. I have also worked extensively on the history of women's healthcare, and the adoption of Arabic medicine in medieval Europe.
