HUM 321

Choose a minority group in our dominant North American culture that is discriminated against and write about their particular obstacles or challenges in obtaining appropriate health care. There are health disparities and health care disparities. Health disparities refer to a higher burden of illness, injury, or disability. Health care disparities refer to differences between groups in health coverage, access to care, and quality of care. For example, a health disparity for people living in poverty is chronic illnesses such as obesity and high cholesterol, and a health care disparity for this group would be lack of access to quality care.

For this assignment please select one of the following:

  • African-Americans
  • Hispanics
  • Asian Americans
  • Muslims
  • American Indians
  • Inuit Indians (Alaska natives who were once called “Eskimos”)
  • People living in poverty
  • The disabled (those with different abilities)

For example, you can investigate end-of-life decision making for African-Americans and why they tend not to choose hospice; the obstacles found in hospitals and doctors’ offices for people with disabilities (that can range from being blind to being wheelchair bound); the rate of alcohol use among American Indians and their access to good health care when living on a reservation; chronic illnesses among those living in poverty; or, whether or not our current climate of intolerance toward Muslims is increasing their health issues and decreasing their access to good care. This assignment helps meet module outcome 4.

In this short of paper, a suggestion would be to make your work focused rather than broad.  Some examples:

Health Disparities

Lower Rates of Physical Activity in People with Disabilities

The High Rate of Obesity Among African-Americans Living in Poverty

LGBTQ Youth and Mental Health Challenges 

Health Care Disparities

Stereotypes of People with Disabilities as Related to Health Care

Health Care Disparities and Rural America

A Lack of Proper Health Care Treatment for People of Color
