Having emergency resources consistently ready to go if necessary, and knowing where shelters are located in case of a natural disaster is one way to prepare. There can also be preparations made to update housing. Some of the articles talked about the devastating effects stemming from poor foundations in many houses in the Pacific Northwest. While I am not aware of the structural foundation of my house, I know that my parents’ house was built a long time ago, and would need updating to make sure it is safe during an earthquake. There are some advantages to being prepared, and making sure your house won’t crumble is probably the best idea.
1.If you were the case manager for this family, when would you begin to intervene? If I was the case manager for this family, I would start to intervene as soon as I became aware of the specific social determinants that would probably negatively affect the family’s health outcomes. Income appears to be the center of many of their problems. For example, the fact that the Hawthorne’s spend 35% of their income on their home mortgage puts them at a much higher risk of not being able to pay for other essentials such as medical care, food, etc.This social determinant that is safe housing is important because it recognizes the chance that in the event of a health/financial emergency, the Hawthorne’s may not be able to make the payments. Whenever a large of amount of one’s income goes to a specific obligation, then other needs like adequate food security becomes jeopardized of decreasing in quality.
Salud y Bienestar is a national program which helps to provide vital information to older Hispanics, as well as families, and their caregivers; about the best way to keep this condition under control and avoid further complications. It was originally founded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Partnering up with other groups provides a much better program with lots of resources. The program has a goal of lowering complications due to diabetes by providing better care among Hispanic older adults; delaying the start of diabetes. In order to achieve these goals they must partner with organizations who focus on the community as well as health professionals.
I SrA Dofonso Fernando am writing this letter on behalf of my family and myself. I believe I would benefit from a humanitarian reassignment. I am applying for reassignment to Nellis AFB, Las Vegas, Nevada due to financial, emotional, and health circumstances. This reassignment would benefit the military and I as I could focus on my health and my family’s health, organize finances and have the ability to provide for my family if I was not geographically separated. The financial burden of maintaining a household in both Hawaii and Nevada, due to our physical separation at this time, is also a hardship on our marriage and ability to exist as a family.
Health disparities have been an issue all over the world. In the United States, individual and community activism have been seen in an attempt to address the health inequalities of the underrepresented groups tracing back to 1781 (Mitchell, 2015). With the passing of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the hope for social equality and justice through insurance for all remains complex. The legislation will certainly provide better health outcomes, but health advocacy remains an important aspect in changing the landscape of our health system. A study indicated that the overall rate of insurance coverage increased and a decreased in “coverage disparities related to race and ethnicity” was noted a few years after the ACA was passed (Buchmueller,
Americans have a past of fleeing their homeland, forging new lands, and taking on the unknown. But, as the world changes, American’s are relying less on themselves to provide for their families and more on the federal government. Because of this, the government has created many social welfare programs, one of which is Medicaid. Medicaid is a government program that provides money to people who are unable to pay for regular medical care (Merriam-Webster). The purpose of the program is to ensure better care, healthier people, and smarter spending (CMS).
The other elements of legislation including age retirement, SSDI, SSI, Medicaid and Medicare help each individual for a continuous source of income and to improve their health. However, there are individual who will take advantage of these benefits and is causing damage on each program resource. Congress needs to address how to preserve the benefits for those who truly need them versus the ones who are capable of working to provide for their family. It is predicated by 2033, there will be 2.1 workers for each beneficiary. In order for Social Security to continue functioning the working population has to increase compared to the retired
What is the United states of America’s solution to foreign poverty? The United States of America’s solution to foreign poverty is to provide them with the aid they need whether it is food, or medical support after tsunami or support with infrastructure. However, instead of handing down donation which will be only one time use for the country. The United States should provide poor country with something that can use forever or something they can use to help themselves. One of the method that will allow the poor country to be independent is by educating the public of the country about ways to improve their economy and providing them with leadership skills which will allow them to support their country.
We need to get that down a bit better and maybe have it in writing. My biggest challenge is to not let things slip past me and I try to be vigilant and not miss a deadline or a closing. I am looking forward to the upcoming year. With the potential of a new Homebuyer program with less disruption and time wasting. I feel like the time that will be saved will help me to expand the rehab program, have more time for monitoring and to taking on new challenges.
Finally, the current refugee crisis caused by the Venezuelan crisis must be addressed by the United States in order to help those affected and create a positive U.S. image. The U.S. can do this by assisting Venezuela’s neighbors such as Columbia. (Ellis 30). All of these methods may be less effective in creating change in the short term, however, in the long term, these actions will greatly benefit the
As you must know, the Dakota Pipeline has been a residing issue for a while now. I believe that we should continue the production of this pipeline. Building this pipeline will benefit our country in multiple ways. For example, by building the Dakota Pipeline, 8,000 to 12,000 jobs will be created. The new jobs will help many people in the country come out of poverty, which interests not only our country, but the economy also.
