Culture and Health
ASU Course Name
HCR 230: Culture and Health
Subject Area

What really is ‘culture’ and who decides what creates it? Is it what language we speak and where we grew up or does it go beyond that to encompass what we believe, think, and value? In this course you will unpack some of those questions and extend them into the field of healthcare. You’ll take a look at the U.S. as well as other countries to examine health, illness, and how healthcare is delivered. You will also unpack barriers to intercultural communication and strategies to not only overcome these but to improve upon them. Cultural competency is increasingly important in not only health care but every single industry - come find out more about what it means - and how it applies to you - in this course!
