Medical Anthropology is my sub discipline. I've missed our annual meetings for the past two years due to illness. As I reflected on my status as a patient, I realized that most of my knowledge of USA health care was based on scholarly texts (articles.& books). I am currently reviewing my journal notes that captured my three week hospitalization and the 6- months of follow-up care after I left the hospital and recuperated at home.
