DATE: 09/22/13 INTRODUCTION TO PUBLIC HEALTH Assignment 2 THE ETHNOMEDICINE ARTICLE ASSIGNMENT Instructions : After reading the article on Ethnomedical beliefs and Patient adherence to treatment, answer the following questions. . 1 How is your interpretation of ethnomedicine influenced by your perceptions of wellness? Being part of a culture that is not a western culture has influenced my interpretation of wellness in ways that are almost unobvious. However, I never realized the undermining similarities and differences between the two until after reading this article. When I think of health wellness, I think of public health and the wellness of our community as a whole. Ethnomedicine has been influencing my thoughts of wellness ever since I was young. Coming from a different culture, the traditional remedies for certain aches or illnesses are very different than western remedies. I think the influences between the two, depends on how strong an individuals ethnomedical beliefs are and how strictly they choose to follow them. Living in a western culture has definitely helped keep an open mind and taught me to balance the two when it comes to anything health related.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
