Community Health Advocacy Project Overview
Each week you will use the Weekly Guide to guide you through the process of creating a hypothetical, community health advocacy project due in Week Six. The following breakdown represents each week's part:
• In Week One, you select an aggregate and write questions to help you identify areas of strength and of need.
• In Week Two, you focus on describing the characteristics of your aggregate and writing an action plan on how you would apply each of Christoffel’s three stages as an advocate for the aggregate.
• In Week Three, you apply the three levels of prevention to your aggregate’s health concern and select the best theoretical model to help you address your advocacy concerns. This model will guide your project in Week Six.
• In Week Four, you design a data collection tool that will be used with your aggregate population.
• In Week Five, you formulate two outcome goals that are specific to your aggregate.
• In Week Six, you design a hypothetical, community health advocacy project based on your completed Weekly Guide. You must submit your completed Weekly Guide in Week Six with your project.
Select an aggregate with a health concern that interests you. You will use this aggregate throughout the class as a basis for your Community Health Advocacy Project due Week Six.
