Take on the role of manager of a Federally Qualified Health Center (Links to an external site.) that provides primary care services to a multi-ethnic, multi-lingual urban community. Many of the patients live below the poverty line. Health care providers in your center see a high volume of patients with challenging medical and psychosocial issues. Because of the high volume of patients, acutely ill patients often wait for two to three days to see a health care provider. Many patients walk in without appointments.
On the other hand, about 35% of patients fail to show up for appointments on a given day. As you investigate the problem, it is becoming increasingly clear to you that the better-insured and English-speaking patients may receive better access. They are more likely to get a timely appointment, keep the appointment, and show up for their appointments because of better communication. You are interested in promoting more equitable access to health care. You understand the importance of providing patient-centered care that is culturally sensitive and a diverse clinic environment to make patients feel more welcome.
In your initial post,
Propose at least three strategies to solve the problem in your health center.
Support your response with a minimum of two scholarly sources that were published in the last 5 years. All sources must be cited using proper APA Style.
-Blog 1: Using the lessons from you’ve learned on rhetoric, rhetorical choices, and concision, you will write your first blog. Remember that this is not a normal assignment grade, but is 15% of your grade for Project 2. Link to text: https://www.ted.com/talks/adam_grant_the_surprising_habits_of_original_thinkers Blog 2: – instructions the same as for Blog 1 Blog 3 – 400 words link to the text : https://www.ted.com/talks/sir_ken_robinson_do_schools_kill_creativity?utm_campaign=tedspread&utm_medium=referral&utm_source=tedcomshare Instructions: Part 1: Read and annotate Read the first text in your chosen text set, which can be found in this module. You will use the same text set for all three blogs. Part 2: Post After you read the article, and once you feel that you understand the article, your job is to craft a response to the article. Your response should do three things: First, briefly summarize the main points of the text (in about 2-3 sentences) . Use what you learned about summary to help you. For example, don’t forget to include the title of the article and the author’s name right away. Blog 4 – 500 words This blog is different than the previous blogs because it requires a new skill (synthesis). Step 1: Compare and contrast your three texts: The three texts (from the previous blogs): • Blog 1: Adam Grant: The Surprising Habits of Original Thinkers • Blog 2:“Failure is Not an Option” by Allison D. Carr (76-81 in Bad Ideas about Writing (Links to an external site.) ) • Blog 3: Sir Ken Robinson: “Do Schools Kill Creativity? (Links to an external site.) ” You should begin by comparing and contrasting the first two texts’ messages and rhetorical strategies. Are these texts communicating similar or different messages? Are these two texts using similar or different strategies to reach their intended audiences? Think about this carefully. Then, explain how the third text fits into your evaluation of the first two.
Langston Hughes wrote a famous piece of literary criticism, “The Negro Artist and the Racial Mountain,” in which he posits that the “job” of an African American poet is to promote black pride. Hughes asserts that an African American poet should “change through the force of his art that old whispering ‘I want to be white’…to ‘Why should I want to be white? I am a Negro—and beautiful’” (701). Focusing on this assertion, compare “The Negro Speaks of Rivers” and “I, Too.” Considering theme, speaker, metaphor, personification, and/or other literary devices, let your comparison bring you to an evaluation of the poems. Which poem better achieves Hughes’ stated goal? (Be sure to answer the question in bold in your thesis!)
Write a newspaper/magazine article (no more than 2 pages in length) that would persuade a Genesis-compromising Christian reader to trust Genesis chapters 1–11 as literal history, based on how other Bible authors treat the text and its characters. Include at least three Scripture references outside of Genesis (preferably other than those cited in the articles) to support your argument.
A case study is the examination of a particular person, group, or community. In this specific assignment, you will be observing the relationship between patient outcomes and one of the techniques learned in this course. Please select a patient with a musculoskeletal diagnosis that can benefit from one of these techniques and base your case study on this.
Your case study should include the following sections:
A) Title page
C) Patient description
D) Intervention description
If possible, please try to use and include outcome measures to obtain numerical data for patient progressions. If needed, please feel free to include tables and figures in your outcomes section.

The Parental Rights and Education Bill has stirred a lot of controversy in Florida. Please watch the news segment and additional videos regarding the bill to gain insight about the bill. Then express your views regarding the issue. Answer the following questions:
Do you agree or disagree with the “Don’t Say Gay Bill?” Explain why or why not? Use direct quotes from the videos to support your response.
What are the proponents and opponents arguments regarding the bill? Use direct quotes in your response
What do you believe are the future implications if the bill is passed or not passed?
What is cultural relativism? What is ethical relativism? What, if any, is the relationship between the two?
Do people outside of a culture have the right to criticize that culture’s values or beliefs? Why or why not?
Think of a strong example of a cultural practice. For example, say another culture practices child marriages. What would a cultural relativist say about this? What would an ethical relativist say about it? Support your answer.
