In Search for a Cure: Trust and Social Inequality in Contemporary China

Presenter: Xisai Song, Ph.D. candidate, Anthropology

This paper unpacks how social inequality shapes patients’ trust in medicine in contemporary China. In particular, I examine how rural low-income patients struggle with chronic kidney disease (CKD).

ROUGH WORK: Discussing research in progress, hence the term, rough work.  This rough work session is hosted by the East Asia Program's Graduate Student Steering Committee (GSSC).
