What are some of your own social determinants of health, and how have they affected your health?
1) What are some of your own social determinants of health, and how have they affected your health? List four determinants and explain how each determinant has impacted your health. Be sure to use specific SOCIAL determinants, and not determinants. For information on the difference between the two, please refer to the lecture.
2) Identify two health disparities (local, national, international). Tell me the disparities, and identify the statistics on each. Be sure to remember the definition of a disparity. You may not use any of the examples given in class lecture or the textbook. Also: be sure to cite your source in appropriate APA format .
3) Describe your own cultural beliefs on health. This should be approximately 4-5 sentences long, minimum. Keep in mind that the belief in Western medical practices is actually a cultural belief.
4) Watch the following video, “Three Reasons We Still Haven’t Gotten Rid of Malaria.” ( https://www.ted.com/talks/sonia_shah_3_reasons_we_still_haven_t_gotten_rid_of_malaria?language=en).
