Announcing the New SMA Mentoring Program!

SMA is beginning a new mentoring program for student members of SMA.  Any student attending the AAA meetings may apply to meet with a mentor.  The student and mentor will meet over coffee at a time agreeable to both during AAA.

The student application is a few sentences (perhaps one paragraph) to include  your name, interests, and degree program.  This should be sent to R. Baer ( by Oct.1, 2015

We also need mentors–professional members of SMA.  Please indicate your willingness to be a mentor in a few sentences to include your name, department and institution, and main interests in medical anthropology.  This should be sent to R. Baer ( by Oct. 1, 2015.

We’ll do our best to match up student and professional-category mentors to those with similar interests.
