1) An interview with hospital historian Michelle Renshaw, Part I: adapting to Chinese expectations of hospital care, by Damjan DeNoble (CCS MA/JD student)

Michelle Renshaw is the author of Accommodating the Chinese: The American Hospital in China, 1880-1920, a history of American medical missionary involvement with China, from the latter half of the 19th century through to the late Republican period of the early 20th century. The book, as we have mentioned before, is a must read for those wishing to understand China’s current medical system, and even more so for those interested in Chinese hospital. This is part one of a two part extensive and fascinating interview with Michelle. Here we cover the theme, "What is 'Chinese' about a Chinese hospital?".

3) China Health Care: The Link Between Income and Health, by Bradley Hoath (CCS MA/MPH student)

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending University of Michigan’s Center for Chinese Studied Noon Lecture Series. Dr. Jersey Liang, Professor of Health Management and Policy at the School of Public Health and Research Professor at the Institute of Gerontology at the University of Michigan, delivered a lecture entitled “Socioeconomic Status and Physical Performance among Older Adults in China.” This piece reflects on Dr. Liang's work, and presents some of my own thoughts on how socioeconomic status affects health in China.
