Health disparity results due to difference in several factors, which are beyond the rich of human influence. Disparity refers to some kind of social injustice that happens with respect to the health services amongst the different individuals in the given society (Kawachi, Subramanian,& Almeida-Filho, 2002). Some section of the society will have access to all the types of healthcare services, and other section of the society will have access to only limited types of healthcare services. As a result, people with limited access will suffer, and their life will be endangered more in comparison with those who have access to all the types of healthcare services. And, disparity is not only limited to access to healthcare services, but it is also related to the difference in the health outcomes and difference in the way people approach for several healthcare services. Such disparities are observed amongst different race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and others.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
