Bolton publishes in Advances in Anthropology

Submitted by Debra Bolton

Debra Bolton, extension specialist, and Major Francisco Hernandez, U.S. Army, recently published in the journal Advances in Anthropology.  

The article, "Applying Global Perspectives in Fragility to Improve U.S. Communities," addressed the effects of global conflicts and other natural or man-made disasters that render individuals and families in a fragile state. Data came from localized, multilingual research and studies from the international development community. The results led to the development of a model of adaptive and culturally relevant practices offered as a logical way to move affected populations toward resilience.
