Epidemiology Reflection #1

Our group was tasked with finding a health issue within the Bronx and creating a facility in order to help towards this issue. My group decided to focus in on the consumption of fruits and vegetables, which proved to be statistically inconsistent in regards to how much people consumed, especially in Kingsbridge, Bronx. In the process of finding the statistics of fruit and vegetable consumption, I realized the importance of looking at the data as a whole, as opposed to looking only at a particular year, as distinguishing between the two greatly affects whether what you’re researching may actually be an issue exclusive to the area or not. I would pursue this further, but I would do further research as I believe issues such as food consumption are simply underlying byproducts of larger issues that exist within a city, or even an entire society.
