Teaching Project

Based upon the community health diagnosis you developed in the Community Demographic assignment, develop a teaching project as an intervention for your community. You will not present the project in this course, but you will have a teaching project that will enhance your ability to educate populations or individual patients about a health issue. To accomplish the Teaching Project, you will create an outline and build a PowerPoint presentation with visual aids. Submit your presentation in Schreiner One under Assessment to Teaching Project.
