About the presenter

Dr. Nora Kenworthy is an Associate Professor of Nursing and Health Studies at the University of Washington (UW) Bothell. She also holds adjunct faculty status in the Departments of Global Health and Anthropology at UW Seattle. Her research, teaching, and public scholarship explores the ethics, politics, and unintended impacts of digital and philanthro-capitalist health initiatives for communities. More broadly, her work examines how digital technologies, commercial interests, and political exclusion are key determinants fueling health inequities. She has explored these topics through ethnographic, community-based, and mixed-methods research in Lesotho, South Africa, the United States, and cross-nationally. Kenworthy is the author and editor of four books, including her forthcoming monograph, Crowded Out: The True Costs of Crowdfunding Health Care (MIT Press). Her work has been published in journals such as the American Journal of Public Health, Social Science and Medicine, Public Health Ethics, Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal, Developing World Bioethics, and PLOS One. Her research has been widely covered in national and international media, and she has written for The Washington Post, Scientific American, The Los Angeles Times, and The Seattle Times. Kenworthy holds a PhD and MA in Sociomedical Sciences from Columbia University, and a BA in Political Science from Williams College.
