BHS 414 Cultural Empowerment of African Americans Health Program Research

PART I. Continuing with the same cultural group and health issue for the Session Long Project that you began in Module 1, write a paper to address the following:

Describe the Cultural Empowerment of the group you chose. Specifically address how each of the PEN-3 model’s three factors within the dimension of cultural empowerment applies to your group, and provide examples.

Use subheadings to clearly show that you have addressed each of the three factors. Support your discussion with references from scholarly and professional references (not just your opinion).

Length: 2-3 pages, excluding the cover page and the reference list.

PARTII. For this final segment of the SLP, consider everything you have learned throughout the SLP and write a paper that addresses the following:

  1. Explain how you would approach a health education program for the cultural group you have written about for your SLP. Support your choices with scholarly references. You should be able to use the information you found in researching your previous SLP papers.
    • Would your program be for the person, extended family, or neighborhood?
    • What positive perceptions, enablers, and nurturers would you want to reinforce? What negative ones would you want to try to overcome?
    • What positive aspects of cultural empowerment would you want to reinforce? What negative ones would you want to try to overcome? What existential ones would you acknowledge but not try to change?
  2. What challenges do you foresee in trying to plan and implement health education programs for this cultural group?

Length: 3 pages (excluding the cover page and the reference list).
