o   Types and locations of medical services available currently
o   Demographics (population, age, gender, etc.)
o   Income and employment
o   Residential detail and any other details you were able to find in your research
Include a rationale of why you selected the city, including if you have any prior experience or knowledge about the existing health care system in that city.

Cite three reputable references to support your assignment (e.g., trade or industry publications, government or agency websites, scholarly works, or other sources of similar quality).

Format your assignment according to APA guidelines.
