Maya Guatemala- The Intersection of Language, Culture and Medicine

Guatemala is a multi ethnic, Central American nation with a long history of state-sponsored violence against its indigenous Maya majority. The role of language and culture cannot be ignored when analyzing the disparities of indigenous vs non-indigenous Guatemalans. Dr. Peter Rohloff, an expert on Mayan language, culture and medicine will lead us thru a discussion to explore the intersection of these three topics.

Presenter: Peter Rohloff, MD, PhD. is the co-founder of Maya Health Alliance, a nonprofit organization that delivers world class healthcare in Mayan languages to the rural poor of Guatemala. His research interests in Guatemala include ethnomedicine, cultural revitalization, and resource-poor health care management. He speaks Spanish, and the Mayan languages Kaqchikel, K’ichee and Tzutujil.
