Question Description

This is a continuation of your final project, which you started in

Week 3. This last piece involves an analysis of how your individual’s

contribution from the past continues to contribute to today’s public

health system and how it might guide future work within the industry. As

you recall, in week 3, you researched an individual and their

contribution to community and public health. To begin, you need to

review the feedback given to you from Week 3. (FEEDBACK BELOW)

You have a great start to your final paper. However there is more information you need to emphasize to show Caron's impacts on Public Health. For example, what did Silent Spring say and how did others react to it? What backlash did she face from the chemical manufactures, some in Congress, and others? What changes occurred? How did these changes impact health?

I recommend utilizing your historical figure's life as the natural progression for this paper. In other words, start from their early life and progress forward through their early and later career. Highlight key aspects of their career that are expressed in the assignment details. Instead of using the assignment requirements as the progression of the paper, use the life of your historical figure to move the paper forward. Discuss the requirements of the paper when they 'appear' in your figures life. Your final paragraphs will be the the discussion on how this figure impacted public health.

Please make sure a majority of your sources are from academic sources (primarily peer-reviewed articles from the library). The majority of your sources should not be websites.

Please make sure you review my comments listed within the paper and the rubric. Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

Then, make the necessary

revisions to Part I of this project. Then, you will be adding the second

half to your project.
