Part 4: Letter to a Policymaker
The last component, Part 4, of your Final Project is to write a letter to the policymaker that focuses on your support or opposition to a health care policy issue you select. Your letter should be written in a respectful tone and focus on the evidence supporting your position, rather than merely expressing your personal thoughts and opinions. You should provide evidence from the peer-reviewed literature to support your position and utilize information from Components 2 and 3. Refer back to your work in Parts 1, 2 and 3 to make a compelling argument in your letter. Be sure to include your chosen elected official’s actual address and use the correct salutation that is used for your elected official’s position. Label your letter as Part 4: Appendix A and add it as the fourth and final part of your cumulative course project assignment.
Note: In grading the Final Project, your Instructor uses a Final Project Rubric. Review the rubric prior to completing your Project Component.
All rubrics can also be found in the Course Information area in the course navigation menu.
The Assignment (2–3 pages)
You will submit your Part 4 Final Project as Part 4: Appendix A and add it to your cumulative assignment document. Your instructor will grade only Part 4 for this week but all four parts must be submitted as one unified file in APA format.
Note: If you received an email confirmation from the policymaker, indicating that your letter was accepted, you may submit that as well.
