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

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)

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
