Health disparities and the social determinants of health can be influenced by many factors, some obvious and some you may never have considered until now. What does health equity mean to you? What can be done to improve the health of vulnerable populations in your community, nationally, and even globally?
To complete this Application Assignment, write a 2- to 3-page paper that discusses how health equity and the social determinants of health, as described in this week's Learning Resources, relate to a racial, ethnic, or geographic group of your choice. In your paper, answer the following questions:
1. What does health equity mean to you? What is the impact of health equity from the perspective of a health care professional?
2. What racial, ethnic, or geographic population are you basing this application on? What types of issues related to health equity are reported in the population you selected for this application?
3. How does your definition of health equity and diversity relate to Walden's mission of social justice?
Be sure to support your work with specific citations from this week's Learning Resources and additional scholarly sources, as required. Refer to the Essential Guide to APA Style for Walden Students to ensure that your in-text citations and reference list are correct.
