Health Promotion in Minority Populations

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?
