Medical anthropologist Doctor Paul Farmer talks with USF graduate students
Doctor Paul Farmer

Medical anthropologist, Doctor Paul Farmer, has been praised for his humanitarian work while also raising controversy for his views on topics like the recovery efforts in post-earthquake Haiti. Farmer was a recipient of an honorary degree at USF’s recent commencement ceremony, and afterwards, he talked to a class of USF graduate students for almost two hours. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 takes you to that meeting and introduces you to the always outspoken Farmer.
