Instructions

You have been recently hired as an Epidemiological Research Assistant at your county’s Health Department. It is only day 1 on the job and you have been asked to develop a presentation for the County Commissioners describing a health disparity within your community. (Blairsvill Georgia)

In your report, you are asked to summarize the demographical information about the population, as well as summarize the health disparity. The County Commissioners ask that you present your findings in a PowerPoint® presentation.

In statistics or epidemiology, when you are asked to summarize an issue, this means that you must do so by using quantitative information. For this Assignment, please summarize by using only descriptive statistics. In order to procure this information, you will need to access databases supported by your State Public Health Department, CDC, CMS, etc.

You should pick a health disparity applicable to your future career.

Throughout your presentation, you must appropriately evaluate the effectiveness of descriptive statistics in summarizing the demographics of the population and the health disparity. Provide contextual information where appropriate.

Requirements

  • Presentation is 10–12 slides in length.
  • Use of the speaker’s notes area contains detailed information, while the slides appear uncluttered.
  • Visual representations of data are used to summarize descriptive statistics of demographical information.
  • Visual representations of data are used to summarize descriptive statistics of the health disparity.
  • Descriptive statistics are evaluated for effectiveness. Contextual information is provided.

Final individual project – interview assignment

ndividual Final Project: Interview Assignment

You are to locate and interview one working individual . The individual must belong to a different identity group from yourself, and you are tasked with interviewing that person about that differing identity group.  For example, an interviewee could differ from you by generation (centennial versus Gen X), by race, by sexual orientation, or gender, or immigrant status, or physical or mental disability, etc. Ask the interviewee if you may speak with them for about 30 to 40 minutes for a course assignment. Be prepared and be professional. If doing the assignment in person, be sure to dress professionally. This project can also be done by phone or your interviewee may submit their answers to you in writing. Your completed project will result in an interview comprised of 10 interview questions, followed by a brief integration of relevant course material, and your detailed answer to 5 discussion questions at the end of each interview based on the format described below. This assignment is worth 100 points.

A. The first page of each interview should be a cover page with your name on it, the name of the interviewee, the title of the assignment (“interview assignment on the topic of [race]”), the topic of the interview (e.g. “Race Diversity”, “Age Diversity”, “Gender Diversity”, “Sexual orientation Diversity”, or “Global/ International Diversity”, “Disability Diversity”) and the date of the interview.

B. On the second page , include the following mandatory items in the following numbered fashion:
(25 points per interview)

1. Name of interviewee and contact information (points will be deducted if contact information is missing.)
2. Race and ethnicity of the interviewee
3. Age and sex of interviewee
4. Company for which the person works or used to work, length of time in the position, contact information for the person
5. Level of education, training, or certifications

C. On the third page of your report number items 6 through 10 using the mandatory questions below*based on the topic of your interview (25 points per interview). 
6. what are their thoughts about [race, sexual orientation, or gender, etc.] in America?
7. have they ever encountered any form of prejudice or discrimination at work or outside of work?
8. how diverse is the place for which they work?
9. had they ever thought about how life would be if they were another [race or ethnicity, gender, younger, straight, or gay, etc.]?
10. how would they describe their interactions with those from different [racial, age, or sexual orientation, etc.] groups?

D. Lastly, the items numbered 11-15 (the last five interview questions) can be asked using some original questions of your own to total five more questions *based on the topic of your interview. Below are some examples of additional questions you might ask. (25 points per interview).

  • have they ever been harassed or bullied at work?
  • do they believe that [racism or sexism, etc.] will ever cease to exist?
  • do they feel included at work where they can be their whole selves racially or ethnically or based on their gender or sexuality?

You should have a total of fifteen numbered items including the interviewee’s information (items numbered 1 – 5), and ten interview questions (items numbered 6 – 15). List the questions you are asking and number those questions in your report as 6, 7, and 8, etc. You may paraphrase the interviewee’s answer when reporting the interview, but list every question that you ask word for word. Be sure to ask follow-up questions when necessary for when the interviewee offers one-word or one-sentence answers. The question will not count if it is not fully answered. I encourage you to ask as many questions as you can to make sure you get some good answers. Be sure to ask follow-up questions when necessary for when the interviewee offers one word or one sentence answers. The question will not count if it is not fully answered. You may paraphrase and/or summarize the interviewee’s responses and you do not have to transcribe their responses word for word. 

E. In addition to reporting what the interviewee said, you need to integrate the course material with at least one answer from the interviewee. Explain the course concepts and list the page number(s) or powerpoint slide(s) where the material is discussed using italics font at the end of the interview.  For example, at the end of each interview, your relevant course material section should begin as, but not be limited to the following verbiage, including a section that reads:

“Relevant course material: We discussed xyz on page 123 of chapter ##. What the interviewee said is directly supportive of the course materials because …. She does abc…”

(Or you could also report) “What the interviewee said is similar to…”

Or,

“This contradicts with…”

When integrating relevant material covered in the course, be sure to demonstrate that you understand how the material learned in class relates to the information you get from your interviewee. You are expected in your report to offer your opinion, insight, and connect the relevant material with what was said. You should also identify if it supports or conflicts with what you have learned and you may (in your report, not to the interviewee) offer comments or suggestions regarding their statements. Failure to include this will result in a deduction of up to 10 points.

F. Finally, answer the following questions in detail at the end of each interview. Write each question out and answer it.  (25 points per interview)

1.What answer did you find the most surprising? Why?
2. What did you learn about this identity group that you did not know before?
3. Did the information you learned cause you to think differently about workplace diversity or discrimination?Why or why not?
4. Will what you learned from the interviewee affect the way you interact with the identity group they belong to? Why or why not?
5. Based on what you learned from the interviewee and this course, what can you do to promote equality and inclusion in the workplace?

    In this primary source analysis, you are required to read an excerpt from a 1961 speech made by Fidel Castro, the communist revolutionary who seized power on the island of Cuba in 1959. 

The purpose of this activity is to examine a primary source speech that is of one ideological persuasion, and examine how persuasive messages and rhetorical devices act as evidence of a certain ideological background (in this case, the socialist message of Fidel Castro following his political ascension). 

After a close reading, please respond to the questions below!

May 1st 1961: Castro’s Address

We have been witnesses, all of us Cubans, of every step taken by the revolution, so maybe we cannot realize how much we have advanced as fully as can be understood by visitors, particularly those visitors from Latin America, where today they are still living in a world very similar to the one we lived in yesterday. It is as if they were suddenly transported from the past to the present of our revolution, with all its extraordinary progress as compared to the past. We do not intend tonight to stress the merit of what we have done. We merely want to locate ourselves at the point where we are at the present.

We had a chance today to see genuine results of the revolution on this May Day, so different from the May Days of the past. Formerly that date was the occasion for each sector of labor to set forth its demands, its aspirations for improvement, to men who were deaf to the working class interests, men who could not even accede to those basic demands because they did not govern for the people, for the workers, for the peasants, or for the humble; they governed solely for the privileged, the dominant economic interests. Doing anything for the people would have meant harming the interests that they represented, and so they could not accede to any just demand from the people. The May Day parades of those days marked the complaints and protest of the workers.

How different today’s parade has been! How different even from the first parades after the revolution triumphed. Today’s parade shows us how much we have advanced. The workers (Light applause) now do not have to submit themselves to those trials; the workers now do not have to implore deaf executives; the workers now are not subject to the domination of any exploiting class; the workers no longer live in a country run by men serving exploiting interests. The workers know now that everything the revolution does, everything the government does or can do, has one goal: helping the workers, helping the people. (Applause)

Fruits of the revolution are seen everywhere. The first to parade today were the children of the Camilo Cienfuegos school center. We saw the Pioneers parade by with the smile of hope, confidence, and affection. We saw the young rebels parade by. We saw the women of the federation go by. We saw children from numberless schools created by the revolution parade. We saw 1,000 students from the 600 sugar-cane cooperatives who are studying artificial insemination here in the capital. We saw young people, humble people, parade with their uniforms of the school center where they are learning to be diplomatic representatives of the future.

We saw the pupils of the schools for young peasants of the Zapata swamps parade by, the swamps that the mercenaries chose for their attack. We saw thousands and thousands of peasants who are studying in the capital and who come from distant mountain areas or from cane cooperatives or from people’s farms parade. We saw the young girls studying for children’s club work. And here everyone of these groups staged scenes that are worthy of praise. And we saw also what is going into the rural areas. The volunteer teachers paraded and also representatives of the 100,000 young people on their way to the interior to wipe out illiteracy. Where does this strength come from? It comes from the people, and it is devoted to the people in return.

These young people are truly children of the people. When we saw them today writing Long Live Our Socialist Revolution with their formations we thought how hard it would have been to have all this without a revolution; how hard for any of these children from the mountains to have paraded here today, or any of these young people from the rural areas to have a chance to get to know the capital, or to study in any of these schools, or to parade with the joy and pride shown here today, or to march with the faith in the future shown today, because schools, university professions, art, culture, and honors were never for the children of poor families, in town or in the country. They were never for the peasant of the remote rural areas; they were never for the poor young fellow, black or white, or our countryside and cities.

Prompt

Summarize Castro’s speech in your own words, and respond to the following as you go: 

  • Who is Castro addressing, what past events does he allude to, and who does he characterize as being members of the working class? 
    • Who did the previous government of Cuba support, according to Castro, and at the expense of whom? 
  • How do descriptions of youth and education factor into this speech? Why do you think Castro is keenly focusing his rhetoric on the lives of Cuba’s youth? 
  • What “fruits of the revolution” are now visible in Cuba? Why do you think these references serve to validate Castro’s speech? 
  • Do you think Castro’s language, statements, and references are persuasive? How do you think this speech might have appealed to persons coming from the poorer classes of Cuban society?
