Part B: Role play essay part I – early 20th century
I am a 25-year old male of Middle-Eastern descent living in New York City. The year is
1905. I live with my wife and one kid in one of the city’s neighborhoods, close to a mile from the
company that I work for. I have studied up to the high school level, although I am in the process

the company’s extended working times, I rarely get time to exercise. Based on my profile, the
following is an evaluation of the health challenges that I face in relation to my lifestyle, leading
causes of death, and other prevailing factors.

deaths in 100,000 in the early 1900s (Shattuck, 2017). Des...
