... Health Problem of Chicano What is the issue? Health Problems are one of the biggest issues for Chicanos in the United States.
Health problems are brought about by many factors such as lack of health insurance, lacking a regular source of medical care, and inconveniences one encounter when trying to obtain health care. According to Frank and Elizabeth (1), about one in six adults living in the United States lack health insurance, the highest uninsured rates are among Hispanics and those with low incomes. Examples of the major health problems observed in the Chicano community in the United States are cancer, heart disease, obesity, asthma, diabetes, alcoholism and HIV/AIDS, among others (Raquel, 1).
