Course Project gives you the opportunity to study an important community health problem or challenge and analyze it in-depth, presenting your findings in an APA written paper format. Critically analyze issues related to your community health topic, and you will consider both our current healthcare environment and future directions in community health. It is a good idea to conduct an internet research on potential topics that you are considering for your Course Project before selecting one. You will want to determine that plenty of information is available online for incorporation into your project. The length of the Course Project should be seven to ten pages, double-spaced, and in strict APA format. You will need at least five outside sources for your Course Project beyond the course textbook. Web resources and professional journal articles will be key sources in researching your topic. In-text citations and APA referencing are required. You will list all of your sources on a Reference Page at the end of the project. The Course Project will include at least the following sections; you may want to include others if you deem them appropriate: 1. Introduction of your Topic 2. Challenges and Problems Associated with your Topic 3. Review of the Community Health Literature 4. Critical Analysis of Challenges/Problems 5. Recommended Solutions 6. Implementation of Solutions 7. Justification of Solutions 8. Conclusion 9. References
