Choose a federal health agency for this assignment (you may use readings and resources of our course or choose one that is not listed but it must be a federal health agency). I recommend choosing an agency that you are not familiar with (you never know where you may find potential job openings).
Discuss this mission of the agency, the structure, their day to day operations and special projects. Look up and find the current year’s budget for this agency. Has it increased, decreased, remained steady? Do you think this amount is enough to accomplish the purpose of the agency or is it underfunded and specifically why?
Length: Minimum of two full pages of text in length. Please ensure you cite your references in APA format.

*A lot of students have trouble with identifying academic sources versus popular sources. Examples of popular sources include NY Times, CNN, WebMD, History Channel, and Wikipedia. These are not acceptable sources for upper level college writing.
