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?
