Ive already started the paper i just need help finishing community

For this assignment, imagine you are the health officer for a specific community/county (of your choosing) in the United States. You have decided to conduct a community health assessment to determine the health priorities you want to address over the next five years. Using secondary data sources*, provide a brief overview of the community and then describe in detail the community’s demographic, social, and epidemiological/health characteristics, as well as community strengths and assets, primarily using tables, graphs, and charts. Based on the data you’ve gathered, identify the most important health concerns your community faces. Lastly, provide at least three health recommendations describing what you will do as the county health officer over the next five years to address these issues.

Your community health assessment paper will be 10 to 15 pages in length. It is best to present data using tables, graphs, or charts; the majority of your paper will consist of these graphics – a minimum of 15. There will also be approximately 4 – 5 pages of text as you will be highlighting information you present in the graphics, as well as prioritizing health concerns, identifying and describing specific strengths and resources within the community/county, and making recommendations on how to improve the health status of residents within the next five years. Your writing should be compelling. The paper will be submitted electronically via Canvas. It must be typed and double-spaced. Please use 11-point font and one inch margins. References and citations are required. APA reference formatting is required. Also, review the grading rubric prior to writing your paper. 

Number the pages of your Assessment; EXCEPT the Title page.

Your paper must include the following 6 sections:

  1. Title Page – Center the information:

**This is not a “free-flowing thought” section.


  1. Appendix
  • All graphics must have a title at the top and a source below it, and be consecutively labeled – e.g., Table 1: Clinical Health Outcomes by Year (Bottom of the table: Source: City Planners of Kansas, 2017).

  • American Community Survey: https://www.census.gov/en.html
