Health status of a 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:

ethnicity influence health for this group?What are the health disparities that exist for this group? What are the
nutritional challenges for this group?Discuss the barriers to health for this group resulting from culture,
socioeconomics, education, and sociopolitical factors.What health promotion activities are often practiced by
this group?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.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?
