Health disparity issue relevant to an underrepresented group.

Health disparity issue relevant to an underrepresented group.

Factors contributing to the outcomes of underrepresented groups in the U.S. are of particular interest in this class. In this assignment, you will synthesize research on a health disparity issue relevant to an underrepresented group. Successful completion of this assignment entails that you address a health outcome within a group that is socially disadvantaged (we discuss these groups in class). A big hint college students are not an underrepresented group. The health outcome you write about must be related to mental health, tobacco, alcohol, or other substance use, sexual health, obesity, cancer, or cardiovascular disease.Your research will entail gathering information on the prevalence of the health issue for the particular group, factors that contribute to the health issue, and possible solutions to eliminating the disparities in an effort to decrease the prevalence of the issue in the particular group. You must include at least 2 peer-reviewed research sources.Be sure to include in-text citations AND a References page with your 2 peer-reviewed sources (and any other sources you use) cited in APA style. You do not need an abstract or cover page.
