    This 4-day course will examine the impacts of cultural transitions and shared beliefs and values on human health with consideration for intervention strategies. Will benefit those interested in
    • How culture ‘gets under the skin’ to influence health behaviours and outcomes?
    • How shifts in cultural trends challenge human health?
    • Whether there are cultural and related strategies that will reduce health risks and possibly even provide benefits to health?

    The course provides insights into key health issues that are related to cultural change and ‘traditional’ habits and values. By the end of the course, participants will have a deeper appreciation of how future risks to health will be impacted by cultural change as well as the potential benefits of health-related activities that are responsive to change.
