Create an asset map that includes the following:

  • Describe the primary community assets available in your Scholar-Practitioner Project community and explain why they are relevant.
  • Select three assets you identified. Explain how you might integrate the asset into a potential community health assessment and public health promotion program that would address the problem you selected for your Scholar-Practitioner Project.
  • Use Resources and current literature to support your response.

Support your Scholar-Practitioner Project Assignment with specific references to all resources used in its preparation. You are to provide a reference list for all resources, including those in the Learning Resources for this course.
