Course Description

CEU Course Description 

According to the projections by the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. population will become more racially and ethnically diverse by the middle of the 21st century, and is projected to become a majority-minority nation for the first time.  This CEU course examines the health care systems, the major diseases, and the barriers to accessing health care for women of American Indians / Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders, Hispanics and Latinos, Blacks / African Americans, and Asian Americans.

 CEU Course Objectives

  1. Discuss the reason for urban American Indian women having both greater difficulties in obtaining access to prenatal care and less likelihood of getting such care than women of other racial / ethnic groups.
  2. Enumerate the factors associated with the greater incidence of low-weight infants born to black women.
  3. Explain why the prevalence of hypertension among blacks varies.
  4. Investigate what the high rate of Hmong women declining treatment is attributed to.
