      • did it add/eliminate laws
  • GRADED ELEMENT : Analyze how this contribution is still relevant today
    • HELP: Was this contribution only applicable at the time it occurred, or is it still applied today? Why or why not? Explain your response
  • GRADED ELEMENT : Examine how this contribution could support or be expanded for future community and public health benefits
    • HELP: Using solid critical thinking, look at the historical value of the contribution and examine how it could be used for the future (is it applicable to another health issue, can it lead to more policy change, could it promote advocacy work or public health laws, etc.)
