Question and answer
The Oxford English Dictionary defines diversity as “the condition or quality of being diverse, different, or varied; difference, unlikeness.” Do you agree or disagree with that definition? Why? What
is your definition of "diversity"?
The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It means understanding that each individual is unique, and recognizing our individual differences. [ These can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies. It is the exploration of these
differences in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment. It is about understanding each other and moving beyond simple tolerance to embracing and celebrating the rich dimensions of diversity contained within each individual. :))) ]

What are some examples of ancillary services in health care? How do these ancillary services support the health care industry?
Weegy: Ancillary providers, just like the rest of the health care industry, have seen their share of changes in referral patterns and in the sources and forms of reimbursement. [ Ancillary providers are the subset of those providers, who provide skilled nursing, home care, outpatient rehabilitation, and transportation, plus facility-based services such as ambulatory surgery, dialysis, laboratory and diagnostic imaging. ] User: How do these ancillary services support the health care industry? Weegy: The major drivers for increased use of ancillary services are: An aging population Rising healthcare costs are forcing payors to seek alternatives to costly in-patient care New technologies which, in some cases, [ are making ancillary services a viable option to in-patient care Ancillary service spending accounts for 20.6% of the total healthcare dollars spent in 2008. That’s more than pharmacy and dental spending combined! ] (More)

In categorizing we often describe a person based on their racial group. Do you think membership in a racial group is completely determined by the color of an individual's skin? or are other characteristics that need to be considered when identifying race?.
Weegy: Race can be used to describe other elements of biological and regional differences. [ For instance, you can be born Jewish (which is usually referred to as a religion), but it does not mean that you have embraced the Jewish customs or religious beliefs. In such cases, the same term can be used to describe either ethnicity or race. Ethnicity does not always describe color either. One can claim to be African, which indicates an entire multi-regional, multi-cultural continent. You can enhance the definition by assigning a sub culture to the ethnicity, such as South African, or Ethiopian. There can be a wide range of skin colors and tones throughout Africa, ranging from the white skin and fair haired faces many associate with the Aryan race to the dark skin, black haired faces that many associate with African regions.

Racial and Ethnic Groups (textbook) suggests that prejudice is so prevalent that it could be considered inevitable. Do you agree or disagree? Provide an example?
Weegy: I agree. Everywhere you look, you will see prejudice. Even when walking down the street, you will hear people refering to others by their race, for example, "the black girl," or "the Asian boy," or "the Italian woman". (More)
