UNST 330 - Health and Healing Practices (Wales Study Group)
Humans have always been concerned with their health and have used various healing methods since ancient times. Focusing on Wales and beginning with an examination of the healing traditions of ancient Celtic people, the impact of successive conquerors and of contact with merchants on medical practices in Wales will be explored. New diseases which arose as human population increased and cities grew and industries developed will be examined. Also numerous scientific discoveries and inventions have changed healing practices. This course will examine changes in the concept of health and in the practice of medicine over time, ending with a consideration of the state of the current health care system in Wales, comparing it to the US health care system, and of future prospects for health care systems.
