HED 285: Social and Behavioral Determinants of Health
Final Project
For this paper you will choose a specific target population
that is affected by the various social/ behavioral determinants of health; that
experiences some of the health disparities we have covered in class. You will
research the social/behavioral determinants of health that are most influential
in the target population you have chosen, describe the health disparities that
most affect this population, and suggest an intervention to reduce the negative
determinants of these health disparities. You will design a Powerpoint
presentation
Your presentation should include at least one slide for each
of the following sections, each slide
labeled with a Heading:
• Background (10
points): Provide a background on the target population. How is this population defined?
How large is this population? Describe the social and demographic
characteristics of this population (age, sex, gender, race/ethnicity, country
of origin, and other relevant characteristics).
• Health Outcomes
and Disparities (20 points): Discuss 2 negative health outcomes that are
disproportionately present in your target population. Compare the prevalence of
each outcome in your target population to its prevalence in the general US
population. What are the historical trends in each outcome (has it gotten
better or worse in recent decades?)?
• Social
Determinants (20 points): Discuss at least 4 social determinants of health that
are most closely associated with the occurrence of health disparities in this
population in the outcomes discussed above. Describe how each social
determinant is related to the health outcome. What is the mechanism?
• Intervention
(20pointss): Discuss one existing intervention that has succeeded in reducing
health disparities in this population. Describe the components of the
intervention and the social determinants and health outcomes it targets.
Describe the outcomes that the intervention has produced. Then, propose one new
intervention that could be applied in this population to reduce a different
negative health outcome (not the one targeted by the existing intervention).
Describe the components of the proposed intervention and the social
determinants and health outcomes it will target.
• Conclusion (10
points): Summarize your paper and make your final point of why it is crucial to
reduce health disparities among the target population.
• Overall
Presentation Quality (20 points): References, graphics, grammar, formatting,
and clarity
