Understanding the difference between federal, state, and local government levels of authority is extremely important. In Medicaid, for example, there are guidelines that define the eligibility process from the federal point of view. However, states have different ways of implementing Medicaid.
For the Unit II Case Study, research and describe a public health agency in your state(California) and the role the agency plays in implementing public health programs within the community. How does this state agency differ from federal agencies, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institutes of Health, and Food and Drug Administration?
Your case study must be a minimum of three pages in length, excluding the title and reference pages. You are required to use a minimum of two outside sources. All sources used, including the textbook, must be cited and referenced according to APA standards.
Remember that all written assignments must be formatted using APA style, including in-text citations and references.
