Ethnomedical Approach

I think that the ethnomedical approach would be the most interesting for me when it comes to understanding health in this course, although all six of the approaches are extremely important when learning/studying health. I say this because many science…

Ecological Approach

I find that the ecological approach would be the best useful to me in studying health.  Since many diseases are common in populations, I find that we should study why diseases are spreading throughout populations.  For example, what ecological factors…
