Assignment #1: Analyzing Disease Social Determinants
Create a 5-7 minute slide presentation with voice commentary (Zoom preferable. Note, all students receive a free Zoom account) or slide presentation with speaker notes addressing asthma in a U.S. state of your choice. Compare your state with the rest of the U.S. Discuss prevalence, rates, incidents of asthma attacks in your state in one recent year, ages, races, and genders impacted, dollars spent on medical care (both emergent and ambulatory), and pharmaceuticals. Please discuss the mortality and morbidity of this disease and paint a thorough picture inclusive of DALYs of a person with severe asthma. This explanation highlights the social determinants of this disease. Create flow charts, pie charts, and/or any visuals you would find educational to share the data you have collected.
Next, discuss an evidence-based approach to caring for this population. Is your state addressing the needs of this population from what you have determined? Who are the main providers? Are there special services for this population? Do they take all forms of payment? What barriers have you found with regard to this disease? How does your chosen state compare to the national data you retrieved?
Cite all sources, be as creative as you would like to be in your presentation, and conclude by sharing how the basic concepts of epidemiology you have learned will make you a better health care leader, using the elements of mindfulness, dialogue, collaboration, and change in your conclusion.
Consider using data CMS, AMA, CDC, and any other evidence-based data collections you find in your research. This should prove you have a full understanding of all the concepts and measurements studied so far.
Mechanics: For this assignment, you will create a 5-7 minute slide presentation that includes flow charts, pie charts, and/or any visuals to share the data collected. Include either a voice commentary or speaker notes.
