Please consider the below in “BOLD” prints to help answer the questions.
For this Discussion, you consider how cultural and economic factors influence those biologic mechanisms that can result in disease for specific segments of the population. You also propose possible policy solutions to reduce the burden of disease.

To prepare for this Discussion, review the Learning Resources. Consider how the determinants of health you have learned about in this class can improve or worsen health for individuals and populations.

Post a brief description of:
A population segment (by race, ethnicity, economic status, geographical location, etc.).
Then, explain the relationship between health inequality/inequities and common biological or behavioral risk factors that have been linked to a particular disease in that population segment.
Finally, describe the relationship between health inequality/inequities and life expectancy for that population.
“Expand on your insights utilizing the Learning Resources.”
