What is the current health status of this minority group?

Analyze the health status of a specific minority group. Select a   minority group that is represented in the United States (examples   include American Indian/Alaskan Native, Asian American, Black or   African American, Hispanic or Latino, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander).

In an essay of 750-1,000 words, compare and contrast the health   status of the minority group you have selected to the national   average. Consider the cultural, socioeconomic, and sociopolitical   barriers to health. How do race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and   education influence health for the minority group you have   selected? Address the following in your essay:

  1. What is the current health status of this minority group?
  2. How is health promotion defined by this group?
  3. What     health disparities exist for this group?
  4. 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 given the unique needs of the minority group you have     selected. Provide an explanation of why it might be the most     effective choice.

Cite a minimum of three references in the paper.
