Review the following lecture:

  • Ten Essential Services of Public Health

During this 10-week course, you will be completing a ~25 page capstone paper that involves a comprehensive analysis of a public health problem. You will select a public health problem of importance to your community as your topic. 

Each week, you will complete a 3-4 page project that allows you to develop the capstone paper over the course of the class. You will the submit the final, complete capstone paper during week 9 of the course.

NOTE: If you are currently doing a PRE-APPROVED practicum with a Public Health organization, you may write a capstone paper related to your experience, in lieu of the paper described above. Contact your course instructor for more information. 
(**This applies only to practicums that have been approved by the Program Director at least 4 weeks prior to the start of PHE4200.)

THIS WEEK, you will identify the PUBLIC HEALTH PROBLEM that will be the topic of your capstone paper. You will be focusing on this problem in a SPECIFIC POPULATION.

Examples of a public health problem in a specific population: “Gun violence in schools”; “Maternal mortality in women from the southeastern U.S.”; “Industrial pollution in low-SES neighborhoods”; “Opioid addiction in rural areas”

After you select your topic, create a 3-4 page report:

  • Identifying and introducing the public health problem
  • Identifying and introducing the population of focus (populations based on age, gender, race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, immigration status, religious affiliation, etc.)
  • Providing evidence that this public health problem, in your population of focus, is significant and of concern

This project will serve as the INTRODUCTION to your final capstone paper. You are laying the groundwork for an exploration of your topic. You are also convincing the reader that it is an important issue to discuss.

Use at least five (5) reputable sources (the text, South University library resources, government websites, peer-reviewed research articles) that you cite in the text and at the end in APA format.
