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.
