Culturally Competent Planning

For this assignment, select a vulnerable population in your community and explain how health care can be affected by cultural, ethnic, and social backgrounds. Building on the skills that you practiced in your Unit 6 assignment, create a plan to promote health and wellness within your chosen population, using (and correctly citing) information from this week’s study activities and any additional resources that you find on your own as you research your chosen population. Paper length: 6-7 pages.


For the population, you can use Denver, and what risks, at-risk population we have. Inflation of the housing market, and not being compensated for the cost of living is just an example…but you’ll have to do a little research for our at-risk populations.

  2. Identify health concerns for this at-risk population.
  3. Identify existing resources in your community that serve and promote health for this specific underserved, at-risk population.
