Project #74740 - discussion based on book: "Detroit: An American Autopsy by Charlie Leduff

Technical Requirements:

  • Number of posts (threads): You must submit 2 posts. 
  • New posts and replies:  At least 1 of your posts must be a new post and at least 1 must be a reply to a post from your fellow classmates.
  • Post length requirement: Each post must consist of at least 200 words. 


First Post Requirements:

  • Discuss a connection between the book and public health. Be sure that your post is unique and not similar to a connection already made by a peer. This post can reflect a general connection between public health and the text. It does not need to associate with one of the public health branches (this is emphasized in the research paper). For example: the book highlights issues in access to care. Public health aims to increase health care utilization and access to reduce health risks and promote health. For example….
  • Do not give a summary of the book. All students are reading and commenting on the same text.
  • Post a critical thinking question for a classmate to answer. Questions can relate to a character, part of the plot, a public health issue, etc. Be sure to read other student postings so you do not ask the same question. If your question is similar, you can edit the question prior to the deadline to receive full credit. Students who ask the same question will not receive credit for this portion of the assignment. Critical thinking questions should provoke thought and consideration among your peers and require application to public health principles. It must be evident that the question connects to the book content.
  • Be sure that your first post discussion does not answer the question that you post. The goal is for someone else to answer this question.

Second Post Requirements:

  • Answer a question posted by one of your peers as a reply post.  Be sure to thoroughly answer the question posted by your peer.  Do not answer a question already answered by a peer. The goal is for each question to be fully answered by one person only. Students who answer a question already answered by a peer will not receive full credit for this post. This answer should be the “bulk” of this post. 
  • Also fully answer the following: Would you recommend this book to another student? Why or why not?  This should include at least 2 sentences of discussion.

Post to answer to:

The issues surrounding public health include much more than simply changing individual behavior.  Society at large holds significant influence over not only one’s ability to access healthcare, but also the inequalities people cannot always control such as environment, economy, and other social determinants of health.  These determinants directly influence people’s ability to access optimal health.  The book highlights in great detail the breakdown of social safety nets in Detroit, Michigan.  One net often taken for granted includes our emergency infrastructure, which the author (LeDuff, 2013, p. 46) describes in Detroit as crumbling under “besieged and beleaguered” public workers.  This breakdown of social trust coupled with declining economic stability, loss of employment, and subsequent abandonment by authority figures has led the city of Detroit to utter chaos, savagery, ultimately “a city anesthetized to violence” (LeDuff, 2013, p. 269).  One of the most suppressing factors for the people left behind in Detroit is the uncanny ability of authority figures to take advantage of the people in every way possible.  Even the firefighters resort to theft (LeDuff, 2013).  Given the rate of squalor many characters in the book face, do you believe the people of Detroit should be held to the same strict legal punishments of crimes committed out of desperation?   Does living in the midst of blatant corruption by city officials and trusted public agents create an atmosphere in which the normal expectations of civility change the amount of culpability and/or compassion outsiders bestow on the members of that population? Should it?
