A key theme of this course is that most health outcomes are driven by personal behavior choices, but that those choices are made in the context of the neighborhoods where we live, work, and play.  A corollary to this theme is that engaged citizens are healthier citizens (defined as a "resident of a particular city"). The object of this project is to take the principles learned in the classroom and apply them in a community environment: observe an issue in the community, document it through video/audio commentary, then use the tools of advocacy to address the issue.While designed for a Public Health course, this activity can be adapted for any topic where community organizing can lead to positive change.
