ANT 365 - Health, Healing and Society


How do we define, experience, and address health, disease, and well-being?  How is health and disease shaped by history, economics, politics, and culture? Why are there such health disparities within and between countries? This course explores these questions and more. Diving into the growing field of medical anthropology, this class examines the key ways in which culture shapes perceptions and experiences with the body, mind, and overall well-being. We examine health policies, practices, and contributors to disease in the United States as well as how wellness and healing are understood and addressed around the world. Throughout the course, we also explore how to apply such understandings in medicine, nursing, and public health. Pass/Fail: Pass/Fail option. Course Typically Offered: Every 2two years.

Prerequisite(s): ANT 101 .
