Forum 2-Health Disparities

A goal of Healthy People 2020 is to “Achieve health equity, eliminate disparities, and improve the health of all groups.”  Read more on disparities:

The U.S. Health and Human Services Department focuses on six health outcomes to assess health disparities in the U.S.  Choose one of these health outcomes: infant mortality, cancer screening and management, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, immunizations.  Discuss the determinants associated with a positive or negative outcome.  What are the specific health disparities that exist? Use rates to show the difference between the populations from primary sources. Include at least one peer-reviewed journal article on the health determinants you identify. You will not be able to see your peers posts until you make your post.
