Good job! By now, you are forming a picture in your mind of the challenge you will embrace in your humanitarian aid trip. In the module Resources, you reviewed Kleinman and

Benson’s approach to conduc�ng a mini ethnography with every pa�ent in the paper “Culture, Behavior, and Health.” Based on that resource, you will outline the popula�on’s culture

(ethnography) affected by and surrounding your selected health challenge.

You s�ll haven’t directly interacted with any pa�ents at the center of your chosen scenario. However, this approach can help you an�cipate the culture the popula�on will reflect.

Through inves�ga�on of the scholarly literature, you will be able to answer the ques�ons: What should you know about this popula�on’s culture before you begin the trip? What

should you prepare to encounter? What cultural adapta�ons will you need to blend the norms and expecta�ons of the popula�on of your culture of origin and the culture of the

popula�on of the chosen scenario?


Building on the prior project prepara�on assignments, conduct a “mini” ethnographic analysis of the specific popula�on for your humanitarian aid trip. For this assignment, cra� a short

paper substan�ated by scholarly literature.

Note that you should cite at least three scholarly sources from your inves�ga�on. The evidence should not be older than five years. To access the Shapiro Library Guide: Nursing—

Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:

1. Ethnicity: Assess the ways in which ethnicity influences iden�ty for the popula�on. In other words, how does ethnicity factor into cultural concep�ons of iden�ty?

2. Stakes: Analyze the stakes of the health issue for the pa�ents and their loved ones.

3. Meaning of Illness: Describe how pa�ents conceptualize illness in this popula�on.

4. Social Stressors: Iden�fy the social stresses pa�ents may experience due to illness.

5. Impacts: Evaluate the poten�al impacts of the clinical se�ng on your rela�onship with the pa�ent.

Student’s Name



My name is Precious Teasley. I’m a recent college graduate with a BS in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from Coppin State University in Baltimore, MD. I look forward in the future to working with patients with Sickle cell Disease. I’m currently pursuing a Master’s in Healthcare Administration. I’m a sickle cell worrier and my biggest reason to pursue a health career is to make a difference in the lives of others. And ensuring that other kids will not have to endure some of the hardships and errors I had to endure while trying to cope with my illness. I see a lot of room for improvement within the management sector of healthcare. I hope to gain more insight into Human Resources and their effects on society because it’ll play a big part in my chosen career field. I enjoy shopping and adding to my Jordan collection, and spending time with my nephews in my free time. I also enjoy traveling and exploring different cultures. I look forward to meeting and working with all of you as we continue our academic journey. I had set my goals in pursuing this course to advance my future ambitions in Human Resources and healthcare management. Therefore, getting an MHA in this field would be helpful for me in taking my career to a level of realization.
