This is a group project about communities and the different aspects of the community. The community selected is San Diego, California.
The portions of the project that I need to come out with are the following
? Interaction of community members (e.g., friendliness, openness, bullying, prejudices, etc.).
? Vulnerable populations:
o Why are they vulnerable?
o How does this impact health?
? Power groups (church council, student council, administration, PTA, and gangs):
o How do they hold power?
o Positive or negative influence on community?
? Harassment policies/discrimination policies.
? Relationship with broader community:
o Fire/EMS (response time)
o Other (food drives, blood drives, missions, etc.)
? Relationships and behavior among community members.
? Educational offerings/programs (e.g., growth and development, STD/AIDS education, contraception, abstinence, etc.).
? Access to birth control.
? Birth rates, abortions, and miscarriages (if applicable).
? Access to maternal child health programs and services (crisis pregnancy center, support groups, prenatal care, maternity leave, etc.).

? Poverty issues/indicators.
? CPS or APS abuse referrals: Compare with previous years.
