Description
People of African descent have some of the highest health disparities in most chronic diseases as compared to other ethnic\racial groups. Some modern day researchers recommend integrating factors that can change the trajectory of health over the life course. By developing strategies to impact health at critical stages of functioning, a culture of health and wellness can be established as the norm resulting in health equity and optimal health achievement. This is the Life Course perspective; implementing health promotion and risk reduction strategies, from the earliest points of human development though life’s end.
