Week 7 Health and Medical Discussion
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING WORD LIMIT REQUIREMENTS:
Please note that each and every assignment has its own word limit.
The CEO of the company feels that, since no one attended the meetings, the approval is valid. Do you agree with the CEO’s claim? Why or why not?
I do not agree with this claim; this is because the community is considered low-income, this means whenever the meetings were hosted, the community residents were probably busy at work or were preoccupied with life. Furthermore, it could be a situation where they never knew exactly what the meeting was about or the time and location of the meeting.
Consider the principle of social justice and include recommendations for what should have been done prior to the council meeting to ensure that the decision was ethical, fair, and valid.
What should have happened was someone from the toxic waste team going around the community door by door explaining what is happening, such as the location of the facility, the disadvantage, the advantage, will it benefit the community, and will it provide jobs for the community. Also, work with the community in hosting the meeting at a time that is appropriate. Also, send out emails, phone calls or zoom/skype on the details of the meetings that the residents missed so that they are up to date on the progress.
Describe two strategies you would implement to engage this community in advocacy for health equity.
Health inequality is providing an opportunity to people based on their needs or ability. A strategy that that should be implemented to engage this community in advocacy for health equity is based on environmental factors. For example, the toxic waste dump could be dangerous for the community because of air and water pollution. Therefore, a law to make sure that the company provides a free water filter to the entire community to prevent water pollution health problems. The second strategy is to provide free full medical checkups 4 times a year for the resident to make sure they are not getting sick from air and water pollution to prevent a community with a high cancer rate and having the babies being born with deformities and disabilities (Centers for diseases control and prevention, 2020).
