Professor Helen Lambert


I am a social anthropologist who has lived and done research in India as well as the U.K. I am interested in social and cultural aspects of health, health care and healing. I have done research into how ordinary people think about health, illness and medicine and on their choices of therapy (of all types, not just biomedical).
