For this assignment, you will perform a case study on the social determinants in the specific community you chose in Unit I.
First, research the determinants of health that affect the community, and give an overview of the determinants of health that you identify. Provide data to support the community health needs that exist.
Next, pick one determinant of health that is of particular interest to you. You are encouraged to step out of your comfort zone and take a look at all determinants of health, not just ones that are considered common or seen in most areas across the United States. Try to identify a determinant of health that is indigenous to the community or one that has a unique impact on the community.
Fully discuss all aspects of the determinant of health that you chose, including its history and/or development over time and its specific impact on the community. Use data or examples to illustrate your findings. You should present an insightful and thorough analysis with strong arguments and evidence.
Finally, discuss a new community health program you can develop as a community health worker to positively affect the local determinant of health. Explain the expected outcomes and effects on the community.
Your case study will be a minimum of three pages, not counting the title and reference pages. You must use at least three scholarly sources, one of which may be your textbook. All sources used must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations. Your case study, including all references, will be formatted in APA style.
