Explain patterns and trends in health and illness among different social groupings Use different sociological perspectives to discuss patterns and trends of health and illness in two different social groups Using the internet you need to research patterns and trends in health and illness. You should focus on 2 health issues (e.g. obesity, cardiovascular disease, suicides, cancer), and look at how gender, age, social economic group and ethnicity impact on patterns and trends in these health issues. To illustrate your answer you may, for example consider differences in life expectancy, morbidity and mortality rates and suggest reasons for these differences. Your written report should include referenced data which is then explained. You should end this part of your report with a conclusion as to whether there is a need for a new health centre.
