Describe the ethnic minority group

Select an ethnic minority group that is represented in the United   States (American Indian/Alaskan Native, Asian American, Black/African   American, Hispanic/Latino, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander).   Using health information available from Healthy People, the CDC, and   other relevant government websites, analyze the health status for this group.

In a paper of 1,000-1,250 words, compare and contrast the health   status of your selected minority group to the national average.   Include the following:

  1. Describe the ethnic minority group selected. Describe the     current health status of this group. How do race and ethnicity     influence health for this group?
  2. What are the health     disparities that exist for this group? What are the nutritional     challenges for this group?
  3. Discuss the barriers to health     for this group resulting from culture, socioeconomics, education,     and sociopolitical factors.
  4. What health promotion     activities are often practiced by this group?
  5. Describe at least one approach using the three levels of health     promotion prevention (primary, secondary, and tertiary) that is     likely to be the most effective in a care plan given the unique     needs of the minority group you have selected. Provide an     explanation of why it might be the most effective choice.
  6. What cultural beliefs or practices must be considered when     creating a care plan? What cultural theory or model would be best to     support culturally competent health promotion for this population?   Why?
