These workgroup members provide a variety of opinions and resources to the learner.

Throughout the course you are given the opportunity to interact with real data representing the issues in the community.

When you have finished analyzing the community, you are asked to quantify the problem by creating a fishbone diagram. The fishbone diagram is an interactive tool useful for indicating cause and effect relationships.

Here you are asked to review an article about WIC. In the course you are expected to interact with real materials that address real issues.
