Academic Office Information

Dr. Voinot-Baron earned his PhD in Anthropology, with emphases in Cultural Anthropology and Law, from University of Wisconsin-Madison. A guiding principle of his research is to develop a more robust understanding of care practices that are underrepresented within dominant medical frameworks. He has conducted extensive ethnographic research with the Akiak Native Community (Yup’ik) in southwest Alaska on issues related to mental health and salmon fishing. As a postdoctoral scholar at the Center for Health Outcomes and Population Equity (HOPE) at the Huntsman Cancer Institute, Dr. Voinot-Baron worked on projects ranging from affective science and commercial tobacco cessation to growing the Center’s partnership with tribal health clinics and entities across the Mountain West.
