about the concepts of “race” and “ethnicity.”
Please read the following article, by Dr. Lisa Bowleg (currently affiliated with George Washington University):
“The Problem With the Phrase ‘Women and Minorities’: Intersectionality – an Important Theoretical Framework for Public Health”
The article was Drafted in the American Journal of Public Health in 2012.
After you have read the article…
1. Access this recent COVID-19 report from the website of the New Jersey Department of Health.
Specifically, access the state health department’s report titled Age-adjusted laboratory confirmed case, hospitalization and mortality rates by race/ethnicity as of November 25, 2020 and look at the bar chart and table for race/ethnicity. Notice in this report how New Jersey has classified its residents by race and/or ethnicity.
2. Access this report from the California Department of Public Health.

After viewing all these materials, you will use this template to create a document which will be the written assignment.
The assignment is to simply answer the questions on the sheet and then upload it when Module 4 is open.
Please answer the questions in order, and keep the question (and the question number) at the start of each response you give (in other words, do not write this like an essay or scientific research paper).
Use your own words whenever possible. If you use the words of the authors of the research article, be sure to place their words inside quotation marks, and identify the original page number in parenthesis, at the end of the sentence where you are putting the quote.
