According to the assigned article, “Health Disparity and Structural Violence: How Fear Undermines Health Among Immigrants at Risk for Diabetes,” narratives tell the story of the interconnectedness between fear and health. Thematically, the issue of fear is a dominant feature that affects how an individual approaches day-to-day living and health. Explain the relationship between fear and health identified by the researchers in the article. Do you agree that structural violence perpetuates health disparity?
In the article there are 3 main fears identified as to why immigrants may not seek medical care. One fear being financial concerns and constraints. The second one being fear of deportation. The third fear is of the medical professionals not being accepting of their cultural alternative remedies. I do believe that these fears are valid and exist. However, I am skeptical to what extent they exist and also about who is behind the promotion of these fears. I believe anyone who has been to a facility like the one I work for would be sharing stories of acceptance. The study was based on one very small community that doesn’t seem to have had much exposure to community health. In my practice I would never question anyone’s immigration status. My job is to care for the patient and tend to their health needs. Outside of making sure they can afford the medications we are sending them home with, I don’t have to be concerned with their financial status. I personally treat everyone the same. I do feel that health maintenance is important and education on prevention needs to be a priority. The rising cost of healthcare is a concern for everyone. We all have to make sacrifices and prioritize in order to pay for healthcare. It is concerning that people of all backgrounds are having to choose between food and medications. I can identify with the concern of health care professionals not being accepting of your use of alternative methods. I believe in using nutrition, herbs, and essential oils as a first line of defense and relief of health issues. Unfortunately, in our country, popping a pill to fix what ails you seems to be more widely accepted. I have seen the look of disapproval when discussing my personal choices for healthcare. It is important to make people feel comfortable sharing their personal practices with you in order to identify possible interactions.
