This paper clearly and comprehensively identifies the disease or population health problem chosen. The problem must be an issue in your geographic area and a concern for the population you will serve upon graduation with your degree. The paper must discuss the epidemiology of the problem at three levels: local (community), state, and U.S. Remember, to include headings for each of the 7 sections below—I’ve bolded these to give you an idea of what the heading title may be. Remember to use the correct level for APA headings.
The paper should be organized into the following sections:
1. Introduction with a clear presentation of the problem and why it is a problem at the local, state, and national level, as well as significance and a scholarly overview of the paper. It is okay to include high-level statistics in this section to clearly identify that there is a problem in your community. Also, be sure to introduce the community/geographic region that your paper focuses on.
2. Background of the disease including definition, description, signs and symptoms, and current incidence and/or prevalence statistics current state, local, and national statistics pertaining to the disease. (Include a table of incidence or prevalence rates by your geographic county, state, and national statistics.) You will find most of this information from online sources, such as CDC, Department of Health, local health department in your chosen state, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s (AHRQ), Cancer Society, and other national organizations that collect data. Please note – your table must be original and not simply a figure or table copied from another resource. Your table should be placed in an appendix which will come after your reference page.
3. A review of Current Surveillance Methods and any mandated reporting or methods for reporting the disease for providers. This section should discuss how data is collected at all three levels (local, state, national). For example, if your paper is about chlamydia, then you would discussion how patient level chlamydia data is collected and if it is mandatory to collect and report this data in your chosen geographic area, state, and in the U.S. Who collects the data? What information is collected? Don’t forget about popular studies (e.g., Framingham Heart Study), CDC, and other national surveillance systems (e.g., Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance Systems/YRBSS). Also, check with your local health department to find out if any local reporting requirements exist or if they collect the data in state or county surveys.
4. Conduct Descriptive Epidemiology analysis of the disease including who is more frequently affected and characteristics of the population that might help in creating a prevention plan. Characteristics may include, but are not limited to gender, race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, occupation, etc. Include costs (both financial and social) associated with the disease or problem. You may find this data from recent studies, CDC, and other national/health organizations (e.g., American Heart Foundation)
5. Review how the disease is diagnosed, current national standards for Screening or Prevention, and pick one screening test and review its sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, cost and any current national guidelines for conducting which patients to conduct this test on. You must report the sensitivity, specificity, and PPV information for the screening test you have chosen. You may find this information in recent studies and in evidence based screening guidelines (CDC, AHRQ, American Cancer Society, etc.). Don’t forget about the U.S. Preventive Service Task Force (USPSTF).
6. Provide a brief Plan of how you will address this epidemiological disease in your practice once you are finished with school. Provide three actions you will take along with how you will measure outcomes of your actions. This section must be supported by recent, evidenced based articles (citations must be present). Each intervention must be supported by at least one recent, applicable evidenced based article per intervention. Don’t forget to discuss how you will implement your plan and how you will measure outcomes related to your plan of action(s). Remember, the three actions must be based on the needs in your chosen geographic area, as evidenced by the statistics you discuss earlier in the paper.
7. Conclude in a clear manner with a brief overview of key points of the entire disease. This section will summarize your paper, including major points from each of the above sections. Don’t forget the conclusion.

Dante Alighieri played a critical role in the literature world through his poem Divine Comedy that was written in the 14th century. The poem contains Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. The Inferno is a description of the nine circles of torment that are found on the earth. It depicts the realms of the people that have gone against the spiritual values and who, instead, have chosen bestial appetite, violence, or fraud and malice. The nine circles of hell are limbo, lust, gluttony, greed and wrath. Others are heresy, violence, fraud, and treachery. The purpose of this paper is to examine the Dante’s Inferno in the perspective of its portrayal of God’s image and the justification of hell.
In this epic poem, God is portrayed as a super being guilty of multiple weaknesses including being egotistic, unjust, and hypocritical. Dante, in this poem, depicts God as being more human than divine by challenging God’s omnipotence. Additionally, the manner in which Dante describes Hell is in full contradiction to the morals of God as written in the Bible. When god arranges Hell to flatter Himself, He commits egotism, a sin that is common among human beings (Cheney, 2016). The weakness is depicted in Limbo and on the Gate of Hell where, for instance, God sends those who do not worship Him to Hell. This implies that failure to worship Him is a sin.
God is also depicted as lacking justice in His actions thus removing the godly image. The injustice is portrayed by the manner in which the sodomites and opportunists are treated. The opportunists are subjected to banner chasing in their lives after death followed by being stung by insects and maggots. They are known to having done neither good nor bad during their lifetimes and, therefore, justice could have demanded that they be granted a neutral punishment having lived a neutral life. The sodomites are also punished unfairly by God when Brunetto Lattini is condemned to hell despite being a good leader (Babor, T. F., McGovern, T., & Robaina, K. (2017). While he commited sodomy, God chooses to ignore all the other good deeds that Brunetto did.
Finally, God is also portrayed as being hypocritical in His actions, a sin that further diminishes His godliness and makes Him more human. A case in point is when God condemns the sin of egotism and goes ahead to commit it repeatedly. Proverbs 29:23 states that “arrogance will bring your downfall, but if you are humble, you will be respected.” When Slattery condemns Dante’s human state as being weak, doubtful, and limited, he is proving God’s hypocrisy because He is also human (Verdicchio, 2015). The actions of God in Hell as portrayed by Dante are inconsistent with the Biblical literature. Both Dante and God are prone to making mistakes, something common among human beings thus making God more human.
To wrap it up, Dante portrays God is more human since He commits the same sins that humans commit: egotism, hypocrisy, and injustice. Hell is justified as being a destination for victims of the mistakes committed by God. The Hell is presented as being a totally different place as compared to what is written about it in the Bible. As a result, reading through the text gives an image of God who is prone to the very mistakes common to humans thus ripping Him off His lofty status of divine and, instead, making Him a mere human. Whether or not Dante did it intentionally is subject to debate but one thing is clear in the poem: the misconstrued notion of God is revealed to future generations.
