Choose from the interventions you wrote in the Week 9 Community Health Needs Assessment Assignment that you would like to develop further into a proposed project.

Step 2: Research Your Intervention Idea

Social Factors: Research your chosen community’s social factors that relate to the identified health need. Some of this information can be found at City-Data.com.
