Actions for Discussion 3: Healthcare Disparities

Your text, Chapter 7, provides compelling discussion on the sociocultural ecologies of disease and illness. With focus on the text’s Case Study: Impacts of a Cultural Ecology: Historical Trauma, American Indians/Alaska Natives, and Health (p. 92-97), discuss this case by sharing perspective on the questions below.

This obviously takes some referencing (minimum of one reference beyond text is required) and expect a good 175-200 words as a guide.

Can you think of any other internal cultural patterns that cause vulnerabilities to disease?

What could the hypothetical Chalmy people do to reduce their malnutrition levels despite the constraints they face?

Edberg (2013) describes the political-economic system is how resources and social benefits are distributed in a society, and more. What are some political-economic circumstances that could impede people from engaging in wellness activities, such as exercise as prevention for diabetes and cardiovascular disease?

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
