(B1) Health Inequity/Disparity For the section on health inequities/disparities, you will identify imbalances of service within your community and provide data to support these imbalances or inequities. Think about your general population and populations at risk related to your health concern. For health disparity you will explain why your target population is more at risk, being left out, or in need of attention compared to other groups. For example, from your Field Experience did you identify any vulnerable populations of the community who were at a disadvantage for services? Was insurance, access to services, income, location, lack of understanding contributes to some individuals not receiving higher levels of resources?
