Students will synthesize current research related to structured inequalities experienced by a particular diverse group in the U.S. Students will also describe stressors and health consequences related to the inequalities identified. The group selected should represent one or more of the following characteristics: race, ethnicity, gender, religion, disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and age. Students will discuss important research findings and the implications of these findings in a review paper (4-6 pages, double-spaced), citing a minimum of five (5) academic peer-reviewed journals.
