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.
