The Research Assignment

Research Paper: After learning about health issues that affect different communities, you will choose a specific health issue of interest (Such as asthma rates in low income areas of cities) then conduct research to ascertain, 1) Why is this a health problem (what statistics/facts are there to highlight this issue; 2) Who is the population being affected (ex. children/adults, urban/suburban, etc.), 3) What is currently being done to address this issues (ex. By the government, local health department, community agencies, etc.); 4) where are the gaps in service? What is missing? What needs to be done to address this issue?; 5) What are your proposed solutions to the problem? What does current research suggest to effectively address this issue?
