About Me

The end of the twentieth century marked the end of the medical huberis that we could somehow win a “war” against all disiese.  Emblematic of this shift is the rise of Multi-Drug Resistant Tuberculosis (MDR-TB.)  It is a tuberculosis bacteria that does not respond to the traditional anti-biotics and is steadly spreading in the wake of AIDS.

As an international studies major, I find the complex story of how MDR-TB came into being facinating.  It is story that ties several of my interests–governence, epidemiology, and globalazation–together.  It interests me how this disease arose from much the same situations as what might cure it.
