Such deep and complex societal issues in culture and health require an entirely new health agenda based on new delivery priorities and a major shift in related research (panel 10). To share disease burdens, a revised strategy for cultivation of collective trust is necessary. This project must, by defi nition, be cultural; for whether healthy groups produce social welfare or welfare states create healthy groups depends on a society’s sensitivity to welfare itself. New models will, therefore, emerge in unexpected ways. It is for this reason amongst so many others that attention to the relation between culture and health presents us with both our biggest challenges and deepest hopes for humankind.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
