ANTH 162 - Intro to Medical Anthropology
This course is an anthropological introduction to the cross-cultural examination of health and illness among humans. The concept of holism is used to examine how various factors, such as culture, biology, linguistic, environmental, political and economic interact to influence wellness, illness and disease. Public health and epidemiologic approaches are considered to illustrate the interdisciplinary nature of the field, and to understand the value of ethnographic data collection on evidence-based evaluations of medical outcomes.
