Also directly respond to at least one classmate below in a way that extends meaningful discussions, adds new information, and/or offers alternative perspectives. student 1. The target population that I am studying for this course is the Hispanic population in Florida. I plan to use sources such as local government websites such as the Florida Department of Health, to get a further understanding of health behaviors among the Hispanic population in Florida.            There are many sources to gain the knowledge that I need to understand the behaviors of the Hispanic population in Florida, different sources will offer different information to get the best understanding. Journal articles will be beneficial to gain knowledge from people who work around the topic, websites are also beneficial to gaining information because there are many government websites that share valid information. Looking at news reports on the topic can give information about specific communities and further information about how the people in the community feel and how the behaviors of the target population is having a negative effect on their health. student 2. The target population I’m exploring to get a better understanding of behaviors is the Hispanic/Latino population in Waukegan, IL.  The sources I plan to utilize will be peer reviewed, scholarly journals, local websites, and case studies. Waukegan, IL population have over 87.6 thousand people. A majority of the resident there, 55.6 percent, are Hispanic/Latino (Data USA, n.d.). Many are undocumented and lack health insurance coverage. Utilizing peer review sources and scholarly journals will provide scholarly reviews writing and reviewed by experts. This will help to ensure my presentation has articles of good quality and scientifically valid. The best way to address the health issues that affect the Hispanic population is to get a clear understanding of how they think and other factors such as the biological, behavioral, physical, and socioenvironmental areas (Institute of Medicine, 2002). So, when developing my presentation, I plan to use local websites such press releases, new reports, and case studies to reach and engage the Hispanic community and community leaders.

envs 5: Drinking Water and Consumer Confidence Reports : Go to the EPA Ground Water and Drinking Water webpage. Under “Consumer Confidence Reports” click on the “Find your local CCR” link on the right.  Click on the state in which you live. Type in the name of your water system or the City, Town or County in which you live.  Once you have done this, click on the “Search” button on the right.  Once your search information loads, scroll down to find the water system or district that serves your home (or the nearest system to you) by clicking on the blue link in the “CCR Website” column.  Alternatively, you can do a google search for your city.  For example, I would google “CCR Water Springfield Missouri”.  If you cannot find the information online, you may be able to request it directly from your water provider.  If you cannot find a water report, or you are on a private well, look for the nearest city of at least 10,000 people near you.  If none of the above work, email me the name of the city and state in which you live and I will help you find an appropriate CCR.  Once you have the report, review any information on the water quality or past violations for your system.  Write a short essay of at least 1 page discussing issues related to groundwater in your state and the area of the state in which you live.  In your paper, be sure and tell me the city and state in which you live.  Submit your paper to the appropriate folder in the Dropbox area of the course.
