If you are an international student, you may choose any policymaker in your area who is responsible for enacting health care policy or laws. Provide the name, title, contact information, and web page if available. Also, explain why you selected this policymaker.
  • Select a health care policy issue of interest that the policymaker you selected supports or opposes. This will be the topic of your Final Project.

Provide a short summary of the health care policy issue you selected.

Part 4: Letter to a Policymaker

The last component, Part 4, of your Final Project is to write a letter to the policymaker that focuses on your support or opposition to thehealth care policy issue you selected for your project. Your letter should be written in a respectful, formal tone and focus on the evidence supporting your position, rather than merely expressing your personal thoughts and opinions. You should provide evidence from the peer-reviewed literature to support your position and utilize information from Components 2 and 3. Refer back to your work in Parts 1, 2 and 3 to make a compelling argument in your letter. The purpose of this formal letter is to convince the policymaker you have selected back in Part 1, of the need or urgency of support for the policy (or defeat of a current policy). Make your case! Be sure to include your chosen elected official’s actual address and use the correct salutation that is used for your elected official’s position. Label your letter as Part 4: Appendix A and add it as the fourth and final part of your cumulative course project assignment.

You should provide evidence, in the formal letter to your policy maker, from the peer-reviewed literature to support your position and utilize information from Parts 1, 2 and 3 as a unified whole to make your case for support of your position.

You will submit your Part 4 Final Project as Part 4: Appendix A and add it to your cumulative assignment document. Your instructor will grade only Part 4 for this week but all four parts must be submitted as one unified file in APA format.
