Public Health Initiative approval 1 PAGE

submit the public health initiative you selected to be the focus of your Scholar-Practitioner Project. Include a brief overview of the initiative and your rationale for selecting the initiative. I want you to concentrate on the economics of the program and not so much on the health program as it relates to a health problem. This course is to learn how to write a grant and to really focus on the economics and the financial aspects of a heath program. So if you cannot find an up and running funded program that deals with your health interest, find one that would be a good one from an economics stand point. REFERENCES •Getzen, T. E. (2013).
