Analyze the health care status of a specific minority group. Select a minority group that is represented in the United States (examples include: American Indian/Alaskan Native, Asian American, Black or African American, Hispanic or Latino, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander).
Compare the health status of the minority group you have selected to the national average. What is the current health status of this minority group? What health disparities exist for this group?
You will find important health information regarding minority groups by exploring the following resources: “Minority Health” and “Racial and Ethnic Minority Populations,” both of which are located on the the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
Explain the cultural and socioeconomic barriers to health. How do race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and education influence health for the minority group you have selected?
A minimum of three references must be used for this assignment.
The title slide and reference slide are not counted in required minimum slide count.
Part 2: Flyer
Develop a one-page flyer that describes a healthy prevention strategy to address one of the 10 leading causes of death for the minority group you have selected.
Refer to the resource “HealthyPeople 2020” for information regarding healthy prevention strategies.
Include the flyer in your group’s presentation.
