Choose ONE of the articles’ topics to focus on for the rest of the SLP. You will use the information in the selected publication as you go through the phases of applying the PEN-3 model to develop a hypothetical health education program.

 

Write a paper that includes the following:

 

1.   Provide a brief overview of the health issue among your selected group, statistics about the scope of the problem, and its implications for health.

 

2.   Describe the Cultural Identity of the group you chose. Specifically address how each of the PEN-3 model’s three factors within Cultural Identity 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).
