Your profile for each population needs to contain information for the following categories:

  3. Religious and Spiritual Beliefs: Are there belief systems that may impact health-related decisions?

  7. Outreach: What efforts have been made to increase medical access to the population?

Based on the chart’s information, write a 800-1,000 word paper that discusses the following:

  1. The similarities and differences of these two groups with regard to accessing health care.
  2. As health care professionals, could we address these factors so as to increase trust in these populations?
