Maternal Child/Developmental and Mental Illness Case Study (Links to an external site.) Choose one of the three attached case studies, and reflect on the vulnerable population that the case study portrays. Identify which case you chose. Discuss several risk factors that may impact health outcomes for the vulnerable population in your case study. Identify one agency in your community (Broward County, Ft. Lauderdale, FL) that can assist this vulnerable group and assess this agency in terms of the 4 A’s (see the lesson). Discuss each of the A’s separately to assess accessibility, acceptability, affordability, and availability for this population.
