Community Strategic Plan

 This paper has two parts (two separate essays but they have the same topic so easier for one writer to do both because the work is to be included in the second.) For this assignment, identify an area of focus in community health within your own community. Using Gordon’s Functional Health Patterns framework (p. 130 in your e-text), assess the health risks in your community. In your community assessment paper, include the following: Identify resources in your community that would enable you to complete a community assessment and submit a summary of your findings (1–2 paragraphs). Refer to Table 8-3: Examples of Community Strengths and Concerns, and assess the strengths and concerns of your community (2–3 paragraphs). Identify potential barriers to implementing community health plans in your community and brainstorm ways of addressing these barriers (2–3 paragraphs). Plan ahead: Next week, as Part B of this assignment, you will select one (1) identified risk from this assessment to develop a community-focused strategic plan to address that health risk.
