practitioners challenging. Hence, Germov (2018) indicates that there is a need to adopt the social model of health that does not deal with individualizing health problems, but identifying the wider social origins to determine the cause of the problem (Germov 2018, p. 18). The most evident case of the impact of the social determinants on the health of people is the widespread health inequalities among Indigenous Australians. The structural impact of these vast inequalities against Indigenous Australians is as a result of long lasting oppression and dispossession practiced by the society. As the health needs of Indigenous Australians is considered individual responsibility than viewed in social context to improve the health of the entire community (Ife & Tesoriero 2006). In contrast, the chapter by Murray (2015) highlights the importance of community health and wellness. It states that in the twenty-first century, health is viewed as a function of community skills (McMurray & Clendon 2015, p. 5). The one ideology that is discussed throughout the chapter is that a reciprocal relationship exists between people and the environment. It defines the manner in which environment has an impact on the health of people. It indicates health as a socio-ecological structure, importance of health literacy, health education, health promotion, and the disparities evident between public health and community health (McMurray & Clendon 2015, p. 7).

    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.
