Unit VI Project
For this assignment you will compare and contrast specific approaches to a community health issue for two distinct age groups.
First, you must select two of the three age groups discussed in this unit (adolescent, adult, or elderly).
Next, conduct your own research for each of the two age groups on one of the following community health issues:
- motor vehicle accidents,
- suicides, or
- domestic abuse.
Your research should look at morbidity and mortality rates of both age groups in your state for the chosen issue as well as other key statistics and mitigating factors related to occurrences within these age groups.
Based on your findings:
- Suggest possible community health interventions that could be used to reduce the occurrence of injury and/or death due to the chosen issue.
- Compare and contrast:
Your project must be at least two pages in length, not counting the title or references pages. You must use at least three sources, one of which may be your eTextbook, to support your project. All sources used must have citations and references in APA Style. APA formatting is otherwise not required.
