Medical Sociology and Race, Ethnicity

 

Race is a group of people who share similar and distinctive physical characteristics. There is a relationship between individual health and one’s race and ethnicity. Health disparities are seen among different racial and ethnic groups. The race-conflict approach is a sociological perspective that looks at disparity and tension between people of different racial and ethnic groups. It's a way of viewing and studying people that focus on racial inequality and conflict. There is a lot of difference between whites and blacks in America. White Americans earn a high level of income, obtains advanced educational degrees, have better access to quality healthcare and live longer than American racial minorities. The injustices against black and minority groups are very high in some of the developed countries.

An Ethnicity is a category of people identify with each other based on common social, cultural or national experiences. Ethnicity is often assumed to be the cultural unity of a group, often based on language and tradition. It is primarily an inherited status. There is a relationship between health of an individual and race and ethnicity. Health disparities are seen among different racial and ethnic groups. Health disparities, which include variations in life expectancy and prevalence of disease, due to the differences in health conditions across various ethnic populations that can be attributed to inequalities in living environment and access to healthcare may also play a role.
