I come from Hialeah city in southeast Florida. The county is quite diverse in terms of the people residing within this county’s cultural and racial backgrounds. Even though the county’s population is diverse, there are certain needs within the community that transcends people’s race, ethnicity, or cultural background. Understanding what these needs are is the first step towards addressing them. Nursing practice, especially one centered on public and community health, will heavily rely on this paper’s information to understand the community’s health care needs and the steps needed to cater to these needs effectively.
