Thinking back to the many things you have learned in this course about the roles, responsibilities, and challenges of a community health worker (CHW), discuss what community organizing now means to you and how the five steps of the community action model (CAM) can be used by a community health worker to facilitate change in the community.

The community action model involves a 5-step process: (1) skill-based training, in which community advocates select an area of focus; (2) action research, in which advocates define, design, and conduct a community diagnosis; (3) analysis, in which advocates assess the results of the community diagnosis and prepare findings; (4) policy development, in which advocates select, plan, and implement an environmental change action and educational activities intended to support it; and (5) implementation, in which advocates seek to ensure that the policy outcome is enforced and maintained. 

Your response should be at least 350 words in length and APA writing style.
