October 31, 2007 Race in the Politics of Health I. The question I am interested in researching is why there is such a disparity between the health statuses of people of color and White people here in the United States. I want to research the relationship between race and health in the United States and see how this relationship compares to other industrialized nations and even some developing countries, particularly Cuba. I am interested in finding out what influence the type of government may have over the health outcomes here in the United States versus other forms of government. I would also like to explore the idea of universal health coverage. Should the government have significant control over the health sector? Is the lack of universal health coverage a major contributor to the racial disparity, or is there some other factor? Would universal health coverage be the answer to the disparity or can the disparity be corrected by tweaking the market-approach to health insurance that we currently employ? Where does one draw the line: should health insurance be a commodity or a basic social right?

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
