Assignment Overview
Select a vulnerable population in your community (helpful hint: search within your zip code). To do this, conduct a windshield survey in your community. A windshield survey is completed by observing a population by looking out of a window of your car (or a bus or riding your bike) to identify a vulnerable population in your community. Conduct research on your chosen population via the Internet and by calling or visiting your local health department. Develop a maximum of 10 slides using PowerPoint to communicate your observations and research. An example listing of vulnerable populations has been included for your consideration.
