The graduate analyzes the impact of communicable diseases on the health of individuals, families, and communities in a global environment.
With the increased mobility of human populations, diseases can quickly spread around the world. In addition, changes in vaccination practices have revealed
an increase in communicable diseases that were once thought to be under control. These global health issues present new problems for community health
In the Bentonville simulation, you learned how an influenza virus impacted the community. You will provide a PDF report of your completed activities.
In this task, you will also analyze an outbreak of a specific global communicable disease that occurred in the last 50 years that crossed international borders
(e.g., the measles outbreak that moved from the Philippines to the United States).
Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual
source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. An originality report is provided when you submit your task that
can be used as a guide
You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each
