Horton shares research on migrant children's oral health

By Staff

Sarah Horton, assistant professor in anthropology at CU Denver’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, presented the result of her research on Oct. 4 at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill conference "Comparing Approaches to Health Inequalities and Justice: A Dialogue on Theory, Method, and (Inter)-Disciplinarity."

Horton’s presentation focused on what ethnography can contribute to the study of Latino migrant children's oral health. Horton has dedicated herself, her career, and her research to investigating the ways for many demographics to seek care abroad. This dedication is demonstrated not only through her recently presented research, but also by her travels to Mexico, as discussed in this article.
