General requirements All assignments should be done in 12-point font, double spaced. If referencing material outside of the course, use an accepted referencing format (e.g., APA or MLA style). All material from outside the course must be appropriately referenced or it will be considered plagiarism. Please minimize grammatical and spelling errors. Points will be deducted for writings that are difficult to read or have frequent errors. Assignment 6 (Weeks 12-13) A white paper is a short policy document that advocates for a particular position or recommendation. Individuals and organizations can increase their chances of impacting policy through well-written White Papers. Prepare a White Paper for the Miami-Dade Health Department or relevant local government advocating for funding for the selected program or policy based on your previous assignment. Include in this: an implementation plan, a policy or program evaluation plan, and a plan for stakeholder engagement and dissemination. In your white paper explain how this option would improve health equity and address the diverse populations in the county. In addition, identify one county or state legislator currently working on the problem, and select one alternative method (YouTube video, one-page policy memo, infographic, etc.) to advocate for your policy recommendation. Describe how you would use your chosen method to advocate. Please use the template provided below for the white paper. A white paper is similar to a policy brief, with the difference being that a white paper advocated for a particular position or recommendation. Your white paper should be about two to three pages in length. For the second part of the assignment, you only need to identify the person, make a choice of an alternative medium, and justify your choice. You are not required to actually produce the video/memo/infographic or whatever you choose. Title Executive Summary A brief summary of what the White Paper entails and is used to help the reader to quickly understand the paper’s purpose. Background / Problem(s) Provide readers with the general background information on the issue at hand. You can build this part on the Statement of the Problem and the Background parts from your previous assignment. Recommendations After explaining the background and problems, propose your solution or recommendations. Only one option will be recommended. You can use the one you recommend from the last assignment. Include a policy or program evaluation plan, and a plan for stakeholder engagement and dissemination. Explain how this option would improve health equity and address the diverse populations in the county. Conclusion The conclusion should briefly restate the main findings and show readers why the goals and/or solutions presented in the previous section are in their interests. What makes white paper conclusions different than other conclusion is the emphasis on what the reader can do as a next step. References Place works cited at the end of your white paper.
