With the U.S. Baby Boomer generation aging and a decline in new births to catch up – there’s a global phenomenon causing “special populations” (the elderly, prisoners, and refugees) to be at higher health risks. Explore the factors and key disease trends causing co-morbidities in populations that are underserved by the medical community. Join us as we walk through a case study on breast cancer awareness among African refugee women in the U.S., and current health promotions to improve public health in these communities.
