Case studies are written by researchers, project managers, and study assistants in an effort to show what the application of public health theory looks like in real life. They allow public health professionals to better understand how best practices in public health are used in ‘real world’ and practical situations. Case studies also provide insight on potential outcomes, both good and poor, as well as challenges faced when theory is applied to practice.

For the Unit 2 Assignment, write a minimum 550-word expository essay. First, provide a brief overview of the ten essential public health services. Using the case study you chose for the Unit 2 Discussion, describe which of the ten essential services the case study fits into and how. Describe some of the challenges the case study authors faced when applying best practices.


  • The paper should be at least 550 words in length.
  • Include a list of references in APA format, including a citation for the case study and any other references used.
  • Go to Academic Tools for assistance with writing and APA.
