: Community Health Assessment
As a future public health professional, it is important that you know how to bring all of the various elements of a community health assessment together into a logical and organized whole. In your Scholar-Practitioner Project, you select a community and a public health problem in that community. You then analyze secondary data sources to complete elements of a community health assessment. The Scholar-Practitioner Project is a synthesis of the elements of a community health assessment using Discussion 2 in Week 1, the assignments in Weeks 4–9, and recommendations given by the Instructor and fellow students. The Scholar-Practitioner Project is due in Week 11.
Scholar-Practitioner Project Guidelines
