Improving health care, from Birmingham to Ukraine Iryna Mazhak, Ph.D., a Fulbright Visiting Scholar from Ukraine, has big plans for her nine months at UAB. She is working with Distinguished Professor William Cockerham, Ph.D., to develop the first medical sociology course and textbook materials for her native country. Medical sociology examines the social, cultural and structural factors that affect health; Cockerham is an internationally renowned leader in the field.

Mazhak’s course will focus on several topics, including the importance of doctor-patient interaction. She says it could be particularly helpful in training medical students in Ukraine.
