Doing Health Anthropology by Christie W. Kiefer

Book Description

What is the relationship between health, human nature, and human needs? The impact of change and stress on communities? The processes by which communities confront and overcome their own problems? How do student study these questions in their communities and as social scientists, help solve these problems? As a compliment to the usual classroom protocol of sitting and reading a research text, Christie Kiefer has written "Doing Health Anthropology" to prompt students to enter the community and ask these important questions themselves. Using this book as a guide, students learn to integrate cultural anthropology with health science and come to their own conclusions based on field research. The book includes common pitfalls to avoid when conducting community interviews and observations, ways to formulate and answer research questions, maintain field notes and other records, and correctly analyze qualitative data. With the help of this text, practitioners and students alike will be able to integrate cultural anthropology methods into their health science investigations and community health initiatives.
