investigate a group distinctly different from your own culture group.

CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY PROJECT: CULTURAL HEALTH BARRIERS-RISKS
ASSIGMENT INSTRUCTIONS
OVERVIEW
Since the Tower of Babel, people have been naturally suspicious of others who are different from
themselves. Language, in fact, continues to be a critical element of culture. For this assignment,
you will choose a geographic cultural group from a selection of offerings. In preparing the paper,
assume it is to be presented to the Liberty Health Mission Board considering funding a health
initiative to the chosen cultural group. The board consists of highly educated health professionals
but needs solid background information on the culture before committing funds. You will
research the chosen culture and identify culturally related health barriers and risks. In other
words, identify and evaluate culturally determining limitations, beliefs, and practices which 1)
hinder the group from adapting better health practices or 2) actually create a risk to the health of
the population. Your goal is to help the board understand the culture.

INSTRUCTIONS

The written paper must be 710 pages in length and include a minimum of 5 scholarly
resources.
All information must be appropriately cited using the current AMA style.
Add a 1-page bulleted talking paper, which must be attached as an appendix to the
document. The talking paper will give the board a tool for rapid comparison to other
cultural groups under consideration for funding.
Culture groups: Your instructor will assign you a particular country from the list below.
You will need to choose a culture group from that assigned country. Choose a group
other than the one from which your family culture developed. You are being asked to
investigate a group distinctly different from your own culture group.: Lebanon
