Culture and the risk of disease
Research has proven that disease risk varies in relation to culture based on diet, exercise, genetics, religion, and access to health care. Students in Health Science 105: Survey of Common Disease showcased their own findings of the importance of becoming culturally aware of a patient’s needs at a poster presentation in the UW-Stevens Point Dreyfus University Center Laird Room Wednesday, Nov. 21.

The students collaborated in groups and discovered how diverse backgrounds are related to major disease categories such as infectious disease, cancer, stroke, and heart disease.
Members of UWSP administration, faculty, community members and other students attended the presentation.
