ANTH 202: Nutrition, Disease and Health
Using Critical Social Theory and a biocultural perspective, this course explores the interplay between concepts of nutrition, health, illness and disease and the cultural contexts in which they are rooted. It addresses several issues, such as: explanatory models for the causes and treatments associated with illness and disease; the relationship between nutrition, growth and development and health; effects of globalization and environment on disease and health; and the way social inequalities, religious beliefs, and political-economic contexts influence disease prevalence and access to health care services.
