Write a 2- to 3-page paper that includes the following:
- Provide a brief overview of the health issue among your selected group, statistics about the scope of the problem, and its implications for health.

Use subheadings to clearly show that you have addressed each of the three factors. Support your discussion with references from scholarly and professional references (not just your opinion).
