6 minutes reading time

The 1960s was known as a time of social upheaval, political protests, and changing cultural norms in the United States. The decade was marked by many movements: the peace movement or anti-war movement, environmental movement, feminist movement, Black and Chicano power movement, sexual liberation, student activism, and a general youth movement. A trend in multi-disciplinary approaches blossomed in this context, including the fields of medicine and health care services.
