Abstract

A team of applied anthropologists (EH, RDB, DM, RO) and refugee service providers (FA and others) worked in collaboration to research dietary change and nutritional status among recently resettled Congolese refugees and to apply the preliminary findings of that research. The Congolese also requested help from the anthropologists with issues of sexual harassment among the adults, school bullying, and issues related to changing gender roles in the United States. We discuss the relationships between the refugees, the applied anthropologists, and the refugee service providers, and how we worked together to address the issues, which were revealed by the dietary study.
