Social and Behavioral Determinants of Health: Community Assessment

This assessment is an opportunity to demonstrate that you understand how to assess needs, assets, and capacities that affect the health and well-being of a community.

Identify and explain your community. Use existing quantitative data to describe the health status of the community you have selected, including morbidity and mortality, by providing statistics of groups/populations impacted. Explain factors that contribute to disparities and inequities in the selected community.
