CULTURALLY APPROPRIATE INTERVENTION PROJECT TO IMPROVE THE HEALTH OF YOUR COMMUNITY

This week your instructor wants you to access and appraise culturally-sensitive, research-based interventions to prevent and improve the health of population at risk. You may be suggesting a new intervention, supporting current interventions in place, or enhance current interventions. Please read about evidenced-based research in your textbook. 

Please address the following in your discussions:
•Share at least two prevention strategies to improve the population at risk that you feel confident are evidenced-based. Why do you think that? 
•Think in terms of evaluation of outcomes. How would you know the interventions made a difference?
•How would you modify the intervention to ensure it is culturally sensitive and meaningful?
