I am a biocultural medical anthropologist. My dissertation project focuses on Iraqi Kurdish families who had children while experiencing economic sanctions during the 1990s. Comparing households with children born before and after the introduction of the United Nations' Oil for Food program allows me to compare in-utero nutritional stressors within families and assess their effect of current young adult health. This project uses mixed methods to collect stories from mothers about how they coped during the 1990s and to conduct surveys for a quantitative evaluation. The findings of this project have implications regarding the short and long term of effects of economic sanctions and food aid programs on population chronic health.
