W6 Reflection Post Prompt

Title: Choose an area or intersection of applied medical anthropology to investigate further (Clinical Medical Anthropology, Public health and Med Anthro, Epidemiology and Med Anthro, Global health and Med Anthro, Community health and Med Anthro, etc.)

Body: (300-400 words)

  • Explain why you picked this intersection and how it applies to your personal interests or future career
  • Imagine you are working for a provider in that area of healthcare who is NOT an anthropologist  (doctor, epidemiologist, nurse, NGO, insurance company, hospital, etc). Explain how taking an anthropological is useful in this particular area – use examples for the course materials and cite your outside sources.

Comment: (200-300 words)

  • Pick someone with the SAME or similar topic as you. Evaluate their reflection – are there additional ways medical anthropology can contribute to this intersection they overlooked?
  • Explain how you think this class will affect your own interaction with health care and health care providers in the future.
