Let’s consider access. How does health care access in our country tend to differ for older adults versus younger adults, men versus women, and between members of various cultural groups? (Don’t limit yourself to age or ethnicity; rather consider the many diverse groups we have learned about this term in your conversation.) To what extent does/should health policy help certain groups get access to culturally resonant services, e.g. alternative health?

As you think about the policies you have been discussing together over the few several days, are there certain policies that seem to fall short for certain groups? Is it inevitable that some groups within a society or community will not have their needs met through health policy? How do we use health policy as an intervention to reach as many as possible? Please apply your readings carefully to support your recommendations.
