TMC Faculty to Collaborate on Planning Grant
TMC professors Warren Kinghorn and Ray Barfield join with faculty from other Duke University Schools on a 2019 Intellectual Planning Grant called “Health as an “Health as an Ecosystem: Expanding Our Imaginations of Health.” TMC post-doctoral fellow, Brett McCarty, St. Andrews Fellow in Theology and Science will also participate. Jennifer Lawson, M.D., Theology, Medicine, and Culture Fellowship alumna, and clinical associate at the Duke Department of Pediatrics will co-lead the group. The group will apply the ecosystem concept to health and explore new perspectives on health systems, population health, well-being, and disease. During monthly meetings, members will consider a range of questions and engage in activities whose focus will encompass capstone projects, seminars, and future grant proposals. It is one of eight groups across Duke receiving grants of $1,000 to $5,000 to foster interdisciplinary collaboration around new and emerging areas of interest.
