My brush with cancer held the mirror of my mortality to my face which induced a level of clarity that transformed the course of my life. I now live a life that is committed to integrating health justice at individual, local, and systemic levels.</strong></p> <p><strong>Over the course of my time in chemotherapy, radiation, and remission I was privileged to have ample resources to address my immediate physical health. However, I lacked sufficient tools to address the acute and long-term effects cancer had on my mental health.&nbsp; I noticed there were gaps in care to detect and integrate mental health services into the cancer patient experience and long-term recovery. Therefore, after college, when I started my first full-time job, I was determined to incorporate my embodied knowledge into my advocacy goals as a Health Policy Research Fellow at the Weitzman Institute. My experience with cancer coupled with my positionality as an Indian Muslim American woman motivates me to examine the impact cancer has on the mental well-being of people who hold marginalized identities—especially racial and ethnic minorities. Thus, this blog post was born seeking to contextualize cancer and mental health screenings in Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) populations.</strong></p> Zeba Kokan Copyright (c) 2023 Biofarma - Multidisciplinary Scientific Journal of Biology, Pharmacy and Health https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2023-01-31 2023-01-31 3 1 WHO ARE THE YANOMAMIS https://biofarma1.net/index.php/1/article/view/16 <p><strong>Yanomami , also spelled Yanomamo or Yanomama , is a group of approximately 35,000 indigenous people living in some 200-250 villages in the Amazon rainforest on the border between Venezuela and Brazil.</strong></p> Dawn Renee Menegucci Copyright (c) 2023 Biofarma - Multidisciplinary Scientific Journal of Biology, Pharmacy and Health https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2023-01-31 2023-01-31 3 1 10.59087/biofarma.v3i1.16 ANTHOPOLOGY OF JACQUES LACAN https://biofarma1.net/index.php/1/article/view/14 <p><strong>As the goal of anthropological studies is to understand human beings, resulting in applying knowledge and theories related to psychology to apply and compare Along with questioning and analyzing "Humanity", which is different from other creatures, such as the skills and ability to use language and calligraphy. to be used in communication and to create meaning It is this quality that makes human beings a meaningful being in the world (Hanks, 1996; Kodre, 1996). 2011).</strong></p> Narupon Duangvisate Copyright (c) 2023 Biofarma - Multidisciplinary Scientific Journal of Biology, Pharmacy and Health https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2023-01-31 2023-01-31 3 1 THE USE OF GRAVIOLA FRUIT IN THE TREATMENT OF CANCER https://biofarma1.net/index.php/1/article/view/19 <p><strong>Graviola (soursop) is promoted as an alternative cancer treatment.
