Assess the Student Understanding of Vulnerability and its Impact in Health

This assignment is designed to assess the student understanding of vulnerability and its impact on health.
Upon completing the assignment students are expected to:
1. Identify the causes of vulnerability from the health care perspective.
2. Recognize the dynamic nature of health vulnerability.
3. Define health vulnerability as intersection of social disadvantage and disease.
Guidelines for Completing Assignment
1. This is an individual assignment based on the readings, handouts, and class discussions. (Write your own definitions of “vulnerable population from a public health perspective.”)
2. Limit your definition to two paragraphs. In the first paragraph establish the fundamental characteristics of vulnerable populations. In the second paragraph illustrate the main aspects of the definition with concrete health related examples.
*Point 1 and 2 from the Guideline is what I need you to focus.
