TEACHING
FORMAL SCHEDULED UCSF CLASSES:
I am core faculty in the Medical Anthropology Program, Dept. of Anthropology, History and Social Medicine. I
teach courses in classic and contemporary ethnography (since 1995), the dissertation-writing seminar (since 1998),
and anthropology research methods (since 1999). I have taught the core course in med anthro theory (2006). I
supervise directed reading and independent study courses every quarter. I was the instructor (with Pat Fox) for
Sociology of Aging, cross listed with Medical Anthropology (from 1993-1999). I was the solo instructor for N148,
Sociocultural Aspects of Health & Illness (MEPN program), School of Nursing (1994-1997). From 1991-1997 I
taught actively in the multidisciplinary courses offered through the Academic Geriatric Resource Program: Med.
170, Intro. to Geriatrics; Soc. 276, Multidisciplinary Geriatric Assessment; Soc. 276, Life Span and Aging Issues in
Clinical Practice; and Soc 218, Advanced Topics in Aging Research. As part of the joint Medical Anthropology
Program UCB/UCSF, I have been a co-instructor at UCB (Anthropology of Aging and the Life Course 1996;
Anthropology of Bodies 2004). I am a guest lecturer in UCB med anthro courses regularly. I routinely offer
directed reading courses to 1 or 2 students and conduct independent study courses with students (at UCSF, UCB,
UCD, and Stanford) from the disciplines of: anthropology, sociology, history, social welfare, public health, medicine
and nursing for work on dissertations, theses, exam preparation, research projects and journal article preparation.

MENTORING:
1988- now
I regularly meet with UCSF students and postdoctoral fellows in medicine, nursing, medical
sociology, health policy and medical anthropology to advise on career development in general and
to discuss such topics as: qualitative research methods, paper writing skills, how to use theory in
anthropology and gerontology, fieldwork strategies and techniques, thesis development, book
manuscript development, dissertation development, grant writing and special projects. I mentor
them as well on the topic of work-life balance, and I take that mentoring responsibility seriously. I
meet with medical students, nursing students, medical residents, fellows and junior faculty in the
school of medicine who want advice/training in the skills of ethnographic field methods,
interviewing, narrative, qualitative research, proposal development, anthropology and gerontology,
grant writing and strategies for protocol development for the Committee on Human Subjects (at
least 10 hours per week in mentorship per above). I meet with UC Berkeley students in social
welfare, public health, sociology, history and anthropology, and I mentor them also in career
development and all the specific areas mentioned above. I occasionally advise and mentor
graduate and undergraduate students at UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Santa Cruz and UCLA in the
areas mentioned above, and supervise their undergraduate theses, master’s theses and doctoral
13
dissertations. I serve as mentor, advisor and thesis committee member to students in the joint
UCB/UCSF medical program (the JMP Program). For several years, I mentored Robert Wood
Johnson clinical scholars who wished to design and carry out qualitative research projects (several
hours per month.) I discuss research, writing and career plans with physicians (residents, fellows,
junior faculty) in the geriatric fellowship program and in other medical specialties. I also advise
undergraduates seeking careers in the social sciences, and graduates of UCSF (sociology,
anthropology, and nursing) and UCB (anthropology, sociology, public health and social welfare)
on job talk preparation and book and article preparation and publication.
Please note: I have mentored, as well as formally advised, every student whose name is listed
above. I mentor every medical anthropology graduate student who goes through our degree
program. Faculty on the UCSF campus I have mentored most recently include, in alphabetical
order: Vincanne Adams, Nancy Burke, Lori Freedman, Vanessa Grubbs, Galen Joseph, Kelly
Knight, Sandra Moody-Ayers, Janet Shim and Ian Whitmarsh,
My mentoring philosophy throughout my career at UCSF is to approach students and faculty
members in terms of both their immediate goals, problems and decision points and in terms of their
longer-term career and life goals. I take this multi-pronged approach in order to draw them out on
what they would really like to accomplish both in the short and long term, and to help them
specifically strategize to reach their goals, which are very often interdisciplinary and multi-faceted.
RESEARCH AND CREATIVE ACTIVITY:
Specific Research Interests: Medical anthropology; Social and Cultural gerontology; impacts of culture of medicine
on society; technologies of death and life extension; bioethics; new forms of knowledge, practice and “life itself” that
are emerging as a result of biotechnologies and their social legitimation; risk; mistrust of science.
I have several lines of inquiry:
1) identity and how it is produced, contested and negotiated, for example, among the very old, frail and demented, in
the context of illness, within health care bureaucracy, and for persons who are neither "dead" nor "alive" but are
maintained by medical technologies; and at the site of cultural formations of "old age," "the person," and "the
human."
2) the culture of medicine, including the evolution of goals, values, ethics in medical practice and research; the ways
in which health care delivery systems and biotechnologies are changing understandings of illness, the patient, life
extension, life enhancement and old age; the relationship of clinical practice to biomedical research; the changing
nature of medical responsibility and the doctor-patient relationship; and the dying process; the role of the insurance,
pharmaceutical and device industries in shaping medical practice, patient need and ethically responsible care.
3) the ways in which cultural narratives -- about individualism, progress, dignity and suffering for example --can be
used to think about the boundaries of the moral and the practical in medicine, and how they operate as "background"
assumptions through which individual stories are lived, constructed, and told. I am interested in the juxtaposition of
the powerful narratives of medicine's "gaze" with patient and family stories about agency, identity and nearness to
death. I am concerned with the fragmentation that is produced by competing perspectives and the cultural ambiguity
fostered by a plurality of narratives about dying, life extension and life enhancement;
4) subjectivity, especially the ways in which the reciprocal impacts of medicine and society are shaping the ways in
which we understand the self, the human, the goals of medicine, and the organization of relationships;
5) the anthropology of "life itself," that is, the fact that all kinds of life forms are now malleable and negotiable, the
result of scientific manipulation, market pressures, commodification and political debate (the gene, the embryo, the
fetus, the disabled, the comatose, the demented, the old) and the ways in which medical, legal, religious, political and
commercial forces are brought to bear on the meaning and value of those life forms;
6) risk society, the ways in which risk assessment, trust in science and biomedicine, and expertise are changing in the
context of controversies in bioscience, shaping health consumer demands and forging the ethical ground for
decision-making and responsibility.

2007-2013
Principal Investigator: “Longevity and Medical Treatment in Old Age.” National Institute on Aging Award
#AG028426
This 5-year ethnographic study investigates the specific ways in which life-extending medical interventions for the
elderly are affecting growing numbers of aging Americans, the physicians who treat them, their families, and the
delivery of medical care in an aging society. Three types of intervention, never before studied for their effects on
clinical and family obligation and end of life planning are: the automatic implantable cardiac defibrillator; living
donor kidney and liver transplant; and cancer treatments. The long term goal is to learn how life extension practices
and the socio-medical-ethical developments surrounding them are impacting geriatric medicine and medical
specialities, the health care older Americans receive, and the experience of elderly persons. The study will provide
data about physician decision-making and patient responses to both aggressive and palliative treatments that will be
important for health consumers, health professionals in a variety of fields, academic geriatrics, and health care
planning in an aging society.
2002-2007
Principal Investigator: “Old Age, Life Extension and Geriatrics.” National Institute on Aging Award #AG20962
This 4-year, qualitative, ethnographic project both builds on her recently completed NINR and NIA awards (on
death, hospital practices and biomedical technologies) and forges in a new direction. It investigates, first, how
physicians, patients age 70 and over and their families make decisions regarding the use of three groups of lifeextending medical procedures (cardiac bypass, angioplasty and stent; kidney and liver transplant; and renal dialysis)
and how they each respond to those procedures. Second, this project seeks to identify socio-cultural issues of
relevance to physicians, nurses and society regarding the growing use of life-extending medical procedures on
elderly patients. Third, it explores how cultural conceptions and definitions of old age and the extension of life are
being re-made through routine activities of clinical medicine. This project pays attention to a reciprocal sociomedical process: the ways in which changing notions about old age, the normal life course, health, disease, and
expectations about the end of life are influencing the practice of medicine with older individuals, and the ways in
which the medical care older persons receive is informing patient and family knowledge and expectations about old
age and health in late life. The interpretive goal is to examine in detail the social, structural and medical practices
and values brought to bear on the extension of life at progressively older ages. This is the first research that
comprehensively addresses medical and lay decision-making surrounding life-extending medical procedures for
older persons, and the responses and experiences of physicians, patients and families to those procedures.
EXTRAMURAL FUNDING - Past:
1999-2003
Principal Investigator: “Technology Use and Prolonging Dying in Older Adults.” National Institute on Nursing
Research Award #NR05109
The goal of this 4-year qualitative anthropological study was to describe and examine how death in the context of
technology use is facilitated, managed, or staved off, and to learn the values and assumptions surrounding both life
prolonging and palliative strategies in the hospital setting. The study took place on four hospital units in one
community hospital. It was an empirical, ethnographic investigation based on the collection of data by interviews
with physicians, nurses, patients, families, and other hospital personnel, and by participant-observation of health care
team meetings and the daily routine on hospital wards. The study had six specific aims: 1)to provide a descriptive
account of life support technology use, especially mechanical ventilation, to prolong life and/or the dying process
among individuals age 40 and older; 2) to learn which aspects of the intubation, maintenance, and withdrawal of life
support technology are considered problematic and why; 3) to learn how staff think about their role in using lifeprolonging technologies; 4) to explore the experience for families of having a relative on life sustaining technologies;
5) to investigate how meanings and decisions regarding life-prolonging technologies are influenced by hospital
routines; and 6) to examine the practices health professionals employ to avoid the use of mechanical ventilation or
other life prolonging measures. The interpretive goal was to examine why closing the gap between what health
consumers say they want and what actually happens with advanced technologies is so difficult.

Principal Investigator, “The Elderly and the Experience of Dying in the Hospital.” National Institute on Aging
Award #AG13636
The goal of this 4-year qualitative anthropological study was to describe and examine how dying and death are
approached and understood by health professionals, patients, and families; and to examine how dying and death
occur among older adults in one community hospital. This was an empirical, ethnographic investigation based on the
collection of data by interviews with physicians, nurses, patients and families, and by participant-observation at
formal and informal health care team meetings on seven units in the hospital setting. The study had five specific
aims: 1) to provide a descriptive account of hospital deaths among older persons and reactions to them; 2) to learn
what dying means to the dying person and how it is defined and understood by others; 3) to investigate the
knowledge and values through which physicians, nurses, patients and families make treatment decisions; 4) to
discover how and the extent to which assumptions about dying and hospital practices surrounding death are mediated
by age; and 5) to investigate how decisions about dying are influenced by policies governing payment and liability,
and by legal prerogatives that control consent, advance directives, and surrogate decision-making. The interpretive
goal of the project was to examine some of the conflicting and ambiguous features of dying that emerge in team
meetings and that interview respondents describe, and to reveal some of the social and cultural sources of deficient
models of care and patient and family suffering so that new models can be proposed.
1993-1996
Principal Investigator. "Physician Dilemmas in Geriatric Care." National Institute on Aging Award #AG11538 60% effort.
The goal of this 3-year qualitative anthropological study was to describe and examine the ways in which 100 primary
care physicians explain and approach everyday clinical-ethical decisions, dilemmas and obstacles in their practice
with geriatric patients. The study had three specific aims: 1) to investigate the assumptions, knowledge, and values
through which physicians make treatment decisions; 2) to examine physician reflections on their work with patients
and families in order to reach decisions; 3) to investigate various structural or institutional constraints that impinge
on physicians' delivery of health care. Data were collected through in-depth, open-ended interviews with practicing
physicians in internal medicine, family practice, general practice, geriatrics and some sub-specialties. Findings were
presented at an invitational conference in 1994, the Gerontological Society meetings 1994, and at the American
Anthropological Association meetings 1994. Three papers published.
1991-1994
Co-Principal Investigator. "From Independence to Dependence Among the Oldest Old" (with Gay Becker). National
Institute on Aging Award #AG09176
The goal of this three-year anthropological study was to examine the health related factors that affect the transition
from living alone successfully to decreased independence among 100 persons over the age of 80. It specifically
focuses on concepts of frailty, medicalization, risk, choice, and responsibility. Three specific aims of the study were
to examine: 1) the personal meanings and experience of living independently in old age; 2) losses associated with
health problems, hospitalizations, and subsequent changes in living arrangements; and 3) older persons' encounters
with the health care delivery system. Data were collected through a variety of means: semi-structured interviews
with individuals and/or family members, observation in health care settings, attendance at case conferences, informal
interviews with health professionals caring for study participants, and assessments of functional status. Findings
were presented at four invitational conferences in 1993-94, the American Anthropological Association meetings in
1992 and 1993, and at the Gerontological Society meetings in 1991. Five papers were published.
1988-1991
Principal Investigator. "Chronicity and Life Reorganization in Old Age." National Institute on Aging Award
This project built on previous research by investigating the social and cultural factors that impinge on the long-term
life reorganization of individuals age 50 and over who have sustained chronic impairments resulting from stroke.
The project examined the processes by which 100 patients and their families reorganize their lives during the period
of 4 to 16 months post-stroke; and examined physician attitudes and practices in geriatric care. Findings were
presented at the Gerontological Society meetings 1990, 1991 and at the American Anthropological Association
1989, 1990. Two papers were published.
16
1983-1986
Co-Principal Investigator (with Gay Becker). "Socio-Cultural Mechanisms of Rehabilitation in Old Age," National
Institute on Aging Award
3-year project to examine the social and cultural factors that impinge on the rehabilitation of individuals age 50 and
over who have experienced a stroke. Findings indicate that the course of rehabilitation and recovery are affected by
the following 4 factors: 1) the age of the patient, 2) physician and other rehabilitation staff values and attitudes, 3)
the structural constraints of the health care system, and 4) the meaning of the illness to the patient and family.
Findings were presented at the American Anthropological Association meetings, 1984, 1985, 1986 and 1987; at the
International Congress of Gerontology meetings, July 1985; and at the Gerontological Society Meetings, 1986. Five
papers were published.
OTHER RESEARCH:
1987-1989
Research Anthropologist. "The Cost of Injury in America." Dorothy Rice, P.I. Department of Transportation and
Centers for Disease Control Award.
In-depth case studies of injury victims and their families who suffer long-term disability resulting from externallycaused injury. This qualitative research was published in Cost of Injury in the United States: A Report to Congress
(D. Rice and Associates).
1987-1992
Principal Investigator. "Physicians' Lives: A Biographical Approach to the Culture of Medicine." UCSF Academic
Senate Award. This project explored the development of values and changing practices in 20th century American
medicine through the cultural analysis of life histories collected from seven distinguished, elderly physicians in
different specialties. It highlights two processes: 1) the transformation in values in medicine during the mid-20th
century, and 2) changes in the doctor/patient relationship. The study, which culminated in a book, The Healer's
Tale, (1993), focuses on the cultural sources of changes in medicine over the past 60 years.
1982-1983
Co-Principal Investigator (with Gay Becker). "Provider decision-making in stroke rehabilitation." UCSF Academic
Senate Award. Research to 1) identify and describe the nature of the rehabilitation process from the provider point
of view, and 2) to discover whether or not the age of the patient determines treatment decisions. In-depth interviews
conducted with 33 providers in the stroke rehabilitation field. Findings indicate that the chronological age of the
patient is an important criteria by which treatment decisions are made. This study led to 1983 NIA award.
1978-1982
Dissertation Research on Identity development among people over 70. NIA Dissertation Fellowship. Conducted 60
in-depth interviews with white, middle-class individuals in the S.F. Bay Area. Sample represented a range of
lifestyles, home environments and health statuses. Findings indicated that self-concepts established earlier in life
were maintained by people as they grew old and were adapted through the years to fit new and changing
circumstances. 1986 book, The Ageless Self: Sources of Meaning in Late Life, is refined, expanded version of
dissertation.
