social determinants of health

Your first assignment will give you the opportunity to apply what you have learned regarding the social determinants of health. You are required to find a news media article that describes a current health issue (obesity, nutrition, exercise, smoking, drugs, etc…). What I want you to do is briefly summarize the media article and then analyze it within a social determinants of health perspective.

You can look for articles online or in magazines and/or newspapers. Most online news outlets have health writers who report on a number of health topics. Your challenge is to find an article that is substantial enough that you have something to analyze. I recommend looking at CBC, CNN, The Globe and Mail, Huffington Post, The Guardian, CTV, etc. You want to find an article that examines a health issue in Canada and offers some sort of solution. You can then look at the same problem through a social determinants of health “lens” and examine their proposed solution with a critical eye. You can refer to your text, notes, and supplementary reading to help you with your analysis. Your assignment will include a brief summary of your chosen article followed by your analysis.
