Describe how healthcare and public health systems address the needs of vulnerable populations.
Public health professionals must understand how data translates to action. Community organizations play an important role in reducing health disparities and serving vulnerable populations through a variety of methods.

Using census data and other research methods, identify a health disparity or vulnerable population in your community. Summarize the data, including appropriate in-text citations.
Identify an organization that supports the population you identified in your community. Services offered should include health care, but may also include financial counseling, social support, etc. A few examples of these organizations are: community health clinics, infant crisis centers, YWCAs, etc.
Research and summarize the organizations’ mission, target population, and why that area of focus is relevant to public health.
