The Horatio Alger Activity physically and visually illustrates the often invisible presence of oppression and privilege in our lives. The activity is used to demonstrate differences within a group that otherwise have a common characteristic (ie health professionals, medical students, etc). Using statements from the Horatio Alger Activity (provided by instructors), a Population Health Application Exercise and discussion follows to examine how social determinants, oppression and privilege lead to health disparities.
