In this paper, the writer outlines a research study on African-American men's propensity to suffer from renal problems and related diseases. The writer reveals the theoretical framework for the study and identifies the research question and assumptions of the study. The terms used in the study are defined, its limitations are outlined, and a literature review is provided. In the conclusion, the writer explains the factors that cause many African-American men to avoid seek treatment during the early or even late stages of renal diseases. The writer also learns that a treatment approach that takes cultural factors into account will be much more effective in preventing the onset of renal disease.

From the Paper:

"There are many African American men with the same attitude towards treatment that are at risk for chronic kidney disease (CKD). Many are reared in a hostile and non-supportive environment. The environment often includes poverty, lack of educational opportunities, criminality, and unemployment. The lack of education and cultural factors, not knowing the risk and not adhering to treatments can have disastrous consequences. Other aspects of African American male culture negatively effect pre-treatment as well."
