Berry, I., & Berrang-Ford, L. (May 01, 2016). Leishmaniasis, conflict, and political terror: A spatio-temporal analysis. Social Science & Medicine, 1.)
I am pleased to congratulate lab member Isha Berry on her recent publication in Social Science & Medicine! The article, entitled Leishmaniasis, conflict, and political terror: A spatio-temporal analysis, examines Leishmaniasis' relationship to terror or political conflict. Isha's study joins some of the few key quantitative examinations as to how Leishmaniasis coincides with conflict or political terror.
