dProvide a brief overview of the health issue among your selected  group, statistics about the scope of the problem, and its implications  for health.

Read the following articles, which can be accessed in the Trident library:

Purcell, N., & Cutchen, L. (2013). Diabetes self-management  education for African Americans: Using the PEN-3 model to assess needs. American Journal of Health Education, 44(4), 203-212.

Lindberg, N. M., Stevens, V. J., & Halperin, R. O. (2013).  Weight-loss interventions for Hispanic populations: The role of culture.  Journal of Obesity, 2013, 542736.

Choose ONE of the articles’ topics to focus on for the rest of the  SLP. You will use the information in the selected publication as you go  through the phases of applying the PEN-3 model to develop a hypothetical  health education program.

Write a three-page paper that includes the following:

  1. Provide a brief overview of the health issue among your selected  group, statistics about the scope of the problem, and its implications  for health.
  2. Describe the Cultural Identity of the group you chose. Specifically address how each of the PEN-3 model’s three factors within Cultural Identity applies  to your group and provide examples. Use subheadings to clearly show  that you have addressed each of the three factors. Support your  discussion with references from scholarly and professional references  (not just your opinion).
  3. Reflect on the required readings, the article you choose for this  assignment, and your own beliefs. Then, briefly describe how culture  influences health care and what you learned that could help you  effectively interact with diverse cultures in the health care setting.

Length: 3 pages, excluding the cover page and the reference list
