This is a paper that focuses on the information on the severity or impact for the selected ethnic group. The paper also has several questions that the students is to answer in detail.

Information on the severity or impact for the selected ethnic group

What should be accomplished in this project?
1. Firstly, find statistics on the rate or prevalence of the condition, or information on the severity or impact for the selected ethnic group. HINT: start with an exploratory literature/web search to ascertain that the group selected from List A is at a significantly higher-risk for a specific condition in List B than a comparison group. The disparity in health status should suggest that special targeting may be necessary for prevention or treatment.

2. Secondly, show that there is a health disparity (as seen in the rate or prevalence of the condition, its severity or impact) between the ethnic group chosen and a comparison group. Use multiple sources, including the required textbooks or any website, book or journal articles to gather information.

3. Thirdly, discuss how this disparity impacts individuals, families and communities, and the field of behavioral health.

4. Fourthly, outline possible environmental, socioeconomic, social, structural barriers to access, cultural (e.g. health beliefs) or behavioral (e.g. sick behavior, disease preventive behavior) causes that might have produced or contributed to the observed disparity in health status for the selected population.

5. Additionally, choose a variable (or small set of variables…e.g. health beliefs or structural barriers to healthcare, etc) which seem(s) to be the major cause or root of the health disparity in question.

6. Then, discuss some major issues to address. (e.g. health insurance coverage, health education, environmental improvement, education improvement, medical literacy, cultural competence etc). In order to be able to develop strategies to reduce or eliminate the disparity in health status for the selected population.

7. Based upon your self-awareness of these issues and the accumulate knowledge of major issues to be address. Develop a comprehensive strategy to reduce or eliminate this health disparity for your selected population.

8. Each student should prepare an informal 25-minute presentation. This presentation should be at a specific audience that is relevant for your topic and would be the most appropriate to listen to. Incorporate the comprehensive strategy you have to develop.
