Doctoral student, Anthropology, Johns Hopkins University

Mac Skelton’s research has focused on how Iraq's ongoing cancer crisis is understood by Iraqi families seeking cancer care abroad. While completing an M.A. in anthropology at the American University of Beirut, he conducted fieldwork at a Beirut hotel where hundreds of Iraqi cancer patients have lodged over the past few years due to the war-related deterioration of medical care in Iraq.
