Each year, MAYS organises an Annual Meeting for members to meet, network, share their research, and discuss a relevant topic within Medical Anthropology.
This meeting location changes each year, and is hosted by the new MAYS coordinator’s university.
The next Annual Meeting will be held early Summer 2018.
