Module 1 – SLP
In this assignment, you will establish the foundation for measles intervention and prevention activities for the intended population in your area. You will apply what you have learned about Public Health, Epidemiology, and Health Statistics.

- Summarize communicable diseases that affect the population at a disproportionate rate.
- Provide a literature review of studies that targeted your selected population for communicable disease interventions/programs.
NOTE: For your Module 2 SLP assignment, you will prepare a PowerPoint slide, video, or photo-voice presentation with an oral narrative. This may take more time than previous assignments, so plan ahead.
