Serving Vulnerable Populations

In this assessment, you will explore your community’s resources for people who live in a food desert, develop a meal plan that fits the medical conditions, consider the culture of the community members, and explore how to help community members maintain health. 

Part 1: Serving Vulnerable Populations

Imagine you are a community health nurse assigned to care for a family with a newly diagnosed type-2 diabetic member. The diabetic family member, JK, is a 66-year-old Black woman with hypertension and asthma. JK lives in a food desert and does not drive. JK’s family visits her weekly, but they have complicated lives and are unable to provide daily care for her. 

Evaluate the following community health resources and summarize them in a table: 

United States Department of Agriculture 

 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Your plan must address: 

  • Appropriate and realistic estimated budget 
  • Shopping locations 
  • Transportation means, routes, and timing 
  • Support services 

Compare JK’s community to your county census data. “The county census data is COOK COUNTY ” of Illinois.
