How does socioeconomic status influence health behaviors, health care, and environmental factors?
In a 3 to 4 page (excluding tile and reference pages) critical thinking paper, develop a program to promote healthy behaviors. Choose one of the following racial/ethnic groups: African American, Latino, Asian American or Native American. Select a gender for the population you selected (male or female). Select one of the following chronic health conditions: cardiovascular (heart disease), cerebrovascular disease (stroke), diabetes, or cancer. Describe the population you have selected. Include the morbidity (illness) and mortality (death) rates for this group. Use the conceptual framework presented in Mehrotra & Wagner, (2006, p. 169), to help you answer the following questions:
- How does race/ethnicity and gender affect this person’s socioeconomic factors?
- How does socioeconomic status influence health behaviors, health care, and environmental factors? Give a specific example for each of them.
- Identify services/resources for the chronic condition you selected. Answer the following question: Have these services/resources been customized to meet the needs of the population selected? Explain your findings.
Incorporate a minimum of 3 scholarly sources (excluding the course text) cited in APA format.
