The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention work to define, address, and advance policies and programs related to health disparity and inequity.
In the next discussion in this unit, you will choose one of the four health issues covered in this course and identify a population of interest and a realistic geographic location for your first assignment.
For this discussion, using the websites and articles in this unit, report on the health disparities that affect population health. In your initial post, provide a website link related to one of these health disparities and explain the health issue, health inequities, policies, and programs to resolve the health issue. How could addressing these health disparities improve health equity?
