Running head: CULTURAL HERITAGE TRADITIONS Cultural Heritage Traditions Michelle Pierson, RN Grand Canyon University Family Centered Health Promotion NRS-429-V Leslie Greenberg August 12, 2012 Cultural Heritage Traditions Heritage and culture plays an important role in a person’s life. It can affect a person’s beliefs, habits, choices, and behaviors (Edelman & Mandel, 2010, p. 17).
