Select a community/population-based health problem common in your state and consider the following:

•Describe the epidemiology of the problem to include incidence and prevalence rates, groups affected by the problem, differences in the distribution of the problem based on group affiliation (for example, is the problem more common among European Americans, Hispanic Americans, African Americans? And so on), and local and state programs that address the problem.

•Using the Model of Ecologic Systems, discuss the influence of the micro and macro system factors on the problem (for example, what macrosystem factors exacerbate the problem, what microsystem factors minimize or exacerbate the problem, include why you think the factors affect the problem).

Your initial post should be about 150 words, referenced with at least one APA-formatted reference.
