Dr. Henry is interested in applied medical anthropology as the interaction of culture, health, society, and illness. He has done research in areas such as sleep and the treatment-seeking behaviors surrounding sleep disorders; violence, refugees, and international relief during conflict and disaster; program evaluation through cost-benefit analyses; structural violence and the public health of young gay and bisexual men; paramedical decision-making; and the "cruising" culture of looking for sex partners in Internet chat rooms. He currently teaches the undergraduate courses Introduction to Sociocultural Anthropology, Peoples and Cultures of Africa, and Field Methods, and the graduate courses Medical Anthropology and Quantitative Methods and Analyses.
