HPRO 2110 Video Reflection Assignment

HPRO 2110 Video Reflection Assignment

No citation of the videos is necessary for this work. Outside sources may be used but are not required. Please cite any outside sources.

You may include personal anecdotes that illustrate how the topic you have chosen is relevant. In your experience, how have you seen these circumstances impact either your own or other people’s lives, and how have these experiences contributed to your learning and understanding of the social determinants and population health?

Style

This paper should be 2-3 pages, double-spaced (not included title page or references), and should be in APA format. Though this paper is a personal reflection (and can include writing in the first person), please remember to use proper writing style.
