HLT – 205 August 5, 2018 Professor Anita West Disparity Analysis Essay I have completed a chart listed about on African Americans and Hispanics about their health care and other health information. All over the united states there is a large number of individuals that are without health insurances. There are many problems going on in the health care system that people are questioning. Multiple Hispanics are unable to get insurance for some reason they are not able to afford it, or they may not qualify for it. 6.3% of Hispanics are without insurance and 19.5% are without insurance. It is hard for them to get the help they need while living on low income and some do not qualify for Medicaid. Hispanics are known to have the highest   rate   in   uninsured   insurance.   Similarities   between   Black   Africans   Americans   and Hispanics/Latinos is the food that they both eat, such as the vegetables that they both eat. Hispanics eat more of unhealthy food and that is the reason that Hispanics are more obese than just about any other races. They like to eat tortillas and lots of dairy products that are not healthy for their immune system. Getting them to reduce the amount of unhealthy foods they eat would be   wonderful   for   their   populations   because  that  would   allow   them   to   be  healthy   without insurance.  “According to a 2015 Census Bureau report, the average non-Hispanic black household  median income was $36,515 in comparison to $61,394 for non-Hispanic white households. In  2015, the U.S. Census Bureau reported that 25.4 percent of non-Hispanic blacks in comparison  to 10.4 percent of non-Hispanic whites were living at the poverty level (OMH, 2018).”  25.6% of

Hispanics compared to 14.7% non-Hispanic whites and 10.4% of non-Hispanics whites are  living at poverty. Poverty is when people have really low income and they fail to meet the

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
