Take Medical Anthropology and explore why…
Medical anthropology is the holistic study of human health, well-being, and illness using a cross-cultural perspective, examining the ways in which different groups think about and act on sickness and suffering. The discipline seeks to understand the social and cultural factors that influence health and well-being; the experience and distribution of illness; the prevention and treatment of illness; and healing processes.
