Ash Hca 430 Week 4 Assignment Accessing Healthcare

Check this A+ tutorial guideline at

Select a vulnerable population and a community-based program developed for this population. (Note: You may use the same program you selected for week three’s discussion forum.) In a three to four page paper,
1) Describe the population and community-based program.

 Example: Barrier- Private or public funding constraints Strategy: Explore new partnerships.
 Example: Barrier- Clients’ care is uncoordinated, fragmented or has...
