Robert Bazell, chief science correspondent for NBC News (2010) stated that the Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York, as well as other hospitals throughout the country, are swamped with type-2 diabetes. The news gets worst. Just seven (7) years ago, the CDC reported that one (1) in ten (10) Americans would contract this disease by the year 2050. Now they are saying it could be one (1) in three (3).
1.Need assistance in comparimg the incidences of diabetes within each region of the U.S. for the past year and identify which state has the highest burden of this disease.
2.Need assistance in analyzing and explain the modifiable and stable characteristics in which morbidity and mortality rates can be observed. Include biological or genetic factors associated with any disparities.
3.Need assistance in suggesting how the incidence and prevalence of diabetes varies across dimension of time, both in the short and long term.
4.Need assistance in proposing the risk factors and causes associated with diabetes, as well as the means or methods of transmission, based on short-term and long-term trends.
5.Need assistance analyzing and explaining how diabetes mortality has changed in the past 50 years and what this tells you about the causes of the disease.
6.Need assistance identifying diabetes patterns across the U.S and within specific areas and formulate a theory for this pattern.
7.Use at least four (4) quality academic resources in this assignment.
