SAME project proposal
Having selected the environmental/occupational health, global health security, health education, or public health problem you wish to examine for your integrative project, and having received approval to pursue this problem as your topic, you will now consider this problem within its broader context. The conceptual model that follows should be used as a guide in identifying the determinants or factors that contribute to the observed problem.Hint: When reviewing this model, begin at the individual level rather than the local, regional, or global levels, and work outward to identify relevant contextual factors.
Access a copy of the report that presents and explains this model in detail. Refer in particular to Section 1.2 (pp. 18-19) of this document.

From this model, please identify and discuss four contextual factors relevant to your problem, and note how each either diminishes or exacerbates the problem you are seeking to address. Your overall response should be 4–5 double-spaced pages, excluding references. Your analysis of the impact of each factor should be supported with evidence from the scholarly literature (at least one peer-reviewed source per factor) and properly cited both within the body of your paper and the reference list appearing at the end.
Upload the resultant paper to the Case 2 Dropbox by the conclusion of this module.
You are expected to consult the scholarly literature in preparing your paper; you are also expected to incorporate relevant background readings.
Your paper should be written in your own words. This will enable me to assess your level of understanding.
Cite your references in the text of all papers and on the reference list at the end.
Proofread your paper to ensure that grammar and punctuation are correct, that reference citations conform to APA guidelines, and that each part of the assignment has been addressed clearly and completely.
Your assignment will not be graded until you have submitted an Originality Report with a Similarity Index (SI) score <20% (excluding direct quotes, quoted assignment instructions, and references). Papers not meeting this requirement by the end of the session will receive a score of 0 (grade of F). Do keep in mind that papers with a lower SI score may be returned for revisions. For example, if one paragraph accounting for only 10% of a paper is cut and pasted, the paper could be returned for revision, despite the low SI score. Please use the report and your SI score as a guide to improve the originality of your work.
Length: 4–5 double-spaced pages
