This podcast was developed as a part of CFHI’s virtual internship in Mexico. A group of three Princeton students sought out to better understand colonialism and its effect on medicine in Mexico.
“Hello! Our names are Matthew Trotter, Steve Lopez and Amy Cho. For our podcast we wanted to explore colonialism and medicine in Mexico as this is a topic widely discussed in the lectures we have been attending during our virtual internship in Mexico with CFHI. Colonialism as it relates to medicine is an important topic as colonials brought many diseases to Mexico, diseases which the natives did not have immunity to. This prompted the need for a variety of hospitals, each of which served different purposes. You will hear more about these hospitals and how colonialism continues to affect modern medicine in our talk. We hope you will enjoy our podcast!”
