The Appalachian cultural group has faced many adversities related to low levels of education, poverty and health issues. In the following discussion, the Appalachian disparities will be examined and how these inequalities affect their health status, employment and education. Finally, two nursing interventions will be addressed to decrease the health disparities and the biggest nursing challenge that occurs when implementing these nursing interventions. There is a fairly large Appalachian population in Ohio and the Appalachia region extends crossing thirteen states within the United States. According to Giger & Davidhizar (2013), nine of the states have a large Appalachian culture with high rates of poverty, unemployment and low income.
Native Americans were the first people in North America. They had many tribes on every region. They also had different lifestyles depending on where they settled. The region most fitted for me is the Great Plains. The Great Plains have vast grasslands, abundant herds of buffalo, mountains, rivers, and streams which seems like a great place to live, hence the name.
An Avalanche is a rapid flow of snow down a hill or mountain side. An Avalanche is caused by new snow or rain can cause snow to suddenly dislodge and cascade down the side of a mountain. Avalanches have been known to be caused by earthquakes or other natural movements. Avalanches have a better chance to occur in mountains such as the Appalachian Mountains, or any other mountain with a 35-45 degree angle. Avalanches can cause flash floods, or economic impact. They can also cause damage to property because of the force coming down the mountain side is strong enough to destroy a house. They have also been known to cause a lot of casualties, because they can get caught in the avalanche and become buried, to get them unburied would take someone
Only a few Buddhist centers survived after the invasion of Muslim armies. On the contrast, Christian churches preserved and spread Christian teachings and the achievements of Greco-Roman civilization. This laid the foundation for future development of the western civilization. The history of Christianity is inseparable from the history of western culture and of western
Christianity is arguably one of the the most influential and important aspects that originated in western civilization. The religion started out as a small sect of Judaism and a man named Jesus spreading his word with a few followers. For centuries, Christians in Rome endured persecution and secret worship. With the appeal of eternal salvation and the hierarchy of the church, Christianity gradually spread, began to rise, and eventually became the prominent religion in Rome. Today, Christianity is the most widely practiced religion in the world.
It is important to understand the history and culture of these two societies, as well as some important factors that went into the creation of this religion. Also this paper will explain what Christianity really is and where it came from. People played a valuable role that went into shaping this religion as well. Within these societies, there were small groups of those who helped the religion survive, despite the struggles they faced and had to overcome. There was different types of leaders throughout this process who each had their own effect on the religion as a whole.
The Appalachia region is less racial and culturally diverse than the rest of the United States. Though, this seems to be gradually shifting. Traditionally, the region has been largely occupied by non-Hispanic whites. The 1990 census exposed the beginning of racial and ethnic change of the Appalachian region (Salob, 2014). The proportion of African Americans was 24.9 percent which was approximately three times greater than non-Hispanic whites at 8.1 percent The poverty rate amongst African Americans in Appalachia was 27 percent with 12.1 percent being non-Hispanic whites.
Christianity is the world's largest religion with about 2 billion followers. Christianity was formed around 33 CE in present day Israel. It is based on the birth, death, resurrection and the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, also known as Jesus Christ. During that time period, Israelites suffered in slavery and sins under the rule of the Roman
Health Care Disparities Health care disparities are unfortunate and being culturally competent is an essential step toward eliminating these inequalities. In this discussion, I will review what disparities are associated with the Appalachian culture and how they affect health status, employment, and education. I will also identify two nursing interventions that could be taken to help decrease the affect that health disparities have on the Appalachians and review what the biggest challenge would be when implementing the interventions. There are about 27 million people that live in the area defined as the Appalachian region, which spans 13 states.
Christianity I am Christian a religion that owes its popularity to the Roman Empire. Every Sunday I go to church with my family and worship God and read the Bible. Christianity was founded in the Roman Empire by Jesus Christ and eventually became the official religion of Rome and the Western world. This carried over to colonists in the Americas and missionaries in Africa where my parents converted to Christianity. My dad is a pastor and came to America and had me due to being a Christian and having to study here.
As more settlers came to the new world from Europe, they brought Christianity with them, and Christianity’s popularity from Europe continued on in the new world. European contact with Native Americans deteriorated the Natives’ religions while strengthening the Europeans’
The existence of Christianity enumerates almost 20 centuries and for this period it made a long way in development and expansion. The Christianity was born in Palestine in the 1st century AD and spread to various corners of the world. Kennedy, P. (2011). Christianity : An Introduction. London: I.B.
