Cecil Helman has passed away
Helman was both anthropologist, doctor and poet. He combined both clinical and anthropological perspectives on a variety of issues in health, illness, and medical care. He was also interested in the role of narrative and creative writing in health and illness.
His textbook in medical anthropology, Culture, Health and Illness has been used in more than 40 different countries. Two years ago he won the Medical Journalists Association Book Award for his chronicle of life as a familiy practitioner, Suburban Shaman: a journey through medicine.
