From the course material, the most important factor that has been discussed and put light on is on disasters, early life origins and adult health, and racial and ethnic inequalities. Some of the facts that were able to be discussed in the subsequent chapter largely focus on many of the societal problems that affects the adult population. Most of the disasters are natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes which are coupled with human made disasters such as terrorism. The chapters further proceeds to give insights that affects the society at large such at racial discrimination in health. We are able to learn from the chapter that there is a general sense of unpreparedness and poor post-disaster when it comes to natural disasters. It is important to note that it is well recognized that vulnerability to disasters and other societal issues that are discussed in the subsequent reads are usually as a combination of personal, social, environmental, and economic circumstance which make such occurrences of such events attributed to the diverse backgrounds in the population. We are also able to learn on some of the factors in early life. We are also able to see that factors such as adult health, aging, and disease risks are responsible for the life course epidemiology. Such factors are important when it comes to health but unfortunately there some health inequality particularly when it comes to race. The chapters have exploited several aspects in relation to natural and man-made disasters, health inequality particularly among the minorities, and the importance of early life. However it is more detailed on the disasters and the post disaster management hence I feel like it has ignored some of the critical aspects of dealing with disaster that is pre disaster management. It is widely known that ‘prevention is better than a cure’. Having pre disaster management is likely to be more beneficial than post management. The first step that is involved in pre management will be more of identifying areas that are prone to the several natural disaster. For example one can identify an area that is prone to tornado occurrences for example. This will then allow people to be better prepared in the likelihood of such an event. There are also factors that I feel that have been ignored in the including factors that are associated with early life. I feel even though there have been many issues discussed when it comes to early life there has been focus on the right channels to raise a child. It is important to realize that the early stages of a person’s life are the most important years and raising a child right should be keen and first on the list. Having the ability to nurture a child right is important and should be priority when considering early life. When it comes to addressing health inequalities particularly when it comes to the minorities, I feel that measures should be set up to allow all members of the population to have equal access to health. Community based health centers should be top on priority as this would allow health care access to marginalized in the community. In the likelihood of a disasters, there are usually adverse effects that are associated. Disasters are characterized with loss of lives and millions in property damage. Such disasters have a large spread with social, economic, and physiological effects to the population. However with proper handling of such disasters, the turmoil can be navigated smoothly. Raising a child on the other hand can also be a challenging experience. This particularly can be attributed to the environment in which is raised in, health and education there are able to receive with a deficiency in either can prove to be costly as a child might not grow the parent’s shape but rather he or she will grow up to be modeled by the society he or she lives in. We are also able to see the racial segregation that has clogged today’s society and in particularly when it comes to health more than often have a ripple effect. The rise in criminal activities among the minorities are usually influenced by such factors of segregation. Throughout the chapter we have to see some of the data methods and conclusions that we can derive from the discussion post. Some of the points that are highlighted is the fact that the type of residential settings influence the level of disaster preparedness and the response. From the various disaster levels that are experienced in the world there are several courses of actions that can be taken into account. There are many phases related to dealing with disasters and when taken into account when dealing with such disasters. In case of a disaster there usually four phases that are taken into account. We are also able to have a careful evaluation on the origins of diseases and the how environmental degradation and decay had contributed to their emergence. There was also a keen focus on past injustice and the maintenance of the status quo from the past that has prevented health inequalities among the minorities. There are been many issues that have been covered throughout the chapter that are relevant in the real world. Given the chance to follow up on the article, I would choose to follow up on some issues. The first I would choose to address the pre disaster management techniques and how to educate the masses basing on regions and their vulnerabilities to such disasters. I would also strive to find better and effective child nurturing techniques that will be crucial in raising a child. Also I would also strive to maintain equality in health to avoid many societal norms that have clouded this space due to such factors. The reading is however very much detailed compared to other readings. They not only cover the post disaster techniques, child nurturing techniques, and fair health provisions but also address various factors such as the threatened populations, the roles of communities and the government when dealing with such issues. In conclusions, there are very important reads that we can derive from the chapter itself in relations to readings that I have been able to read. These can spark up conversations which can be helpful in educating the class. The first question I would propose would be “Name some of the post disaster phase techniques?”. The second question would be “What are some of the child nurturing techniques?”. I feel these questions will have a lasting effect that will assist the students to learn a thing or two with about the various societal issues.
