This is a continuation of your Final Assignment. In Week 3, you worked on Significant Contributions to Public Health Final Assignment Part 1. This week, Part 2 involves an analysis of how your individual’s contribution from the past continues to contribute to today’s public 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. Now, you need to review the feedback given to you from Week 3 and make the necessary revisions to Part 1 of this project.

Your Week 3 assignment should have included each of the following elements:

  • Describe your selected person’s experience.
  • Analyze the climate of the time period in terms of political, socioeconomic, environmental, and technological context in which this person worked.
  • Examine the personal beliefs of your person that prompted this work.
  • Examine how this individual overcame any adversities to succeed.
  • Describe the final outcome of this individual’s contribution to community or public health.
  • Explain what this person’s contribution did for overall community or public health at the time.
  • Explain why this contribution was so important at that particular point in history.

Use the outline below to organize your paper or presentation. Do not type the “Steps” into your paper or presentation.
