Excluding drugs from their lives could be a productivity boost and improve their overall health. Many US employers require drug tests before being cleared to work therefore this request for drug testing isn’t more invasive than going through the job acceptance process. This focus on jobs could help slowly eliminate long term welfare users. It might also prevent people from starting recreational drug use because it means losing their welfare, which may give them housing or a nutrition plan. There are some tradeoffs to including a drug test for welfare recipients.
Poor grammar is learned and then reinforced by music, advertisement, media, family, and friends. A medical assistant, who uses incorrect grammar might not be aware of it because they were associated with it. Being aware of the need for good grammar or even practicing good grammar will help with being professional in health care. Good grammar also helps lessen confusion when a message is sent out to other employees or when the patient
Both Raul and Francis had different views, even though they came from the same culture, but both had the common view that some people are arrogant or don’t know how to get access to health and understand it fully. Francis stated that some of the Spanish translations aren’t very good or don’t help at all especially if one isn’t literate or be able read and write in general. One of the studies I read about health literacy in Hispanics at the University of South Carolina they gave out 28 studies between the years of 1992-2008 in order to measure the level Hispanics HL. They found that there is
However, curanderismo allows other cultures to accept Chicanos due to stressing the importance of intercultural communication skills in society. For instance, even though some Chicanos have insurance, they tend to follow these holistic practices and are afraid to mention it to their primary physicians because they fear being rejected from society. According to Maritza Montiel, “A recent study concluded that 69% of Mexican Americans do not report the use of herbal remedies to their physicians” (Montiel 83). Becoming aware of the cultural differences, encourages cross cultural sensitivity by reducing the tensions between other cultures and practices. In addition, professionals can understand their patients’ needs by understanding the social framework of the biological illness.
The statue was a symbol of hope and freedom to them because they knew better opportunities were awaiting there. However, immigrants were faced with several challenges when they arrived.

The United States is composed of many cultures, traditions and religious beliefs, sometimes making it difficult to find the right treatment for each individual patient. Some may believe their religion will cure them from any disease and therefore reject any medical care, which can lead to unplanned visits to the emergency department, and to add to the situation there is also language barriers. “Members of certain religious communities are convinced that their religious beliefs and practices reduce their risk for chronic diseases (Christiansen et al). Religious beliefs can influence members to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle, which will decrease their risk for heart failure. The Seventh-Day Adventists (SDA) communities advocate against alcohol consumption, tobacco smoking and recommend a lacto-ovo-vegetarian diet, members are expected to be physically active and have stable social relationships (Christiansen et al).
Through the program, I learned that having critical thinking skills and precision are essential components of becoming pharmacists. For instance, the program was stimulating as I discovered that the most important thing a pharmacist does is to check if there are any harmful interactions between medications. It fascinates me that such a little pill can create an enormous difference in a person 's life. I take medications, but I don 't know what happens to it after I eat it. I hope to go to university to learn more about how medications are produced and how they work to make us feel better.
Community service or volunteering hours is a need for every high school student to be eligible to attend college. It is an opportunity that is given to change people 's lives, including yours. Volunteering is like a win-win situation where you feel good to achieve more knowledge and others feel good because they are getting helped. Although it may be considered unpaid work volunteering can also be a great way to explore, or gain experience for your new job or career especially for me since I want to be a doctor. People need attention elders for example, do not get that many visitors at care centers.
