Beth Uzwiak is a medical anthropologist and artist with a deep commitment to community engagement. Past research projects include analyses of gendered health disparities as they result from neoliberal reform policies in Belize, the impact of social welfare policies on women and children who have survived violence and who live in transitional housing, and transnational indigenous women’s human rights activism to address structural, environmental, and intimate violence. As a Senior Research Associate with Creative Research and Evaluation in Philadelphia, I conduct participatory and collaborative evaluations with organizations that have health, gender, and educational programming. I am also a practicing artist with interest in visual and arts-based methods.
