Access to healthcare is deeply linked with economic standing. Economic standing can be defined by a variety of factors. For the purpose of our project, we are defining economic standingby employment, debt, and income security. We believe this social determinant category to be significant because the disproportionate level of poverty minorities face, especially when analyzed through a level of health perspective, is a form of violence. In this project, we plan to outline, specifically within the Milwaukee community, how economic standing is a social determinant and deeply impacts the ability of minority groups to receive equal access to healthcare.

This project conducted in partnership with Marquette University Honors Program.
