Like many health departments which serve large metropolitan areas, The Summerville Health Department conducts on-going surveillance on major sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The purpose of this surveillance system is to 1) assess the status of STIs in Summerville and its cities as well as to 2) prioritize STI clinical and educational resources. Each year the health department releases a report with yearly STI trends by demographic data. But the current annual report does not demonstrate trends throughout time (just a comparison from the previous year). The need to include an additional, more comprehensive report to better serve both purposes of the system was revealed when the chief epidemiologist received a call from the adult health services (AHS) manager. The AHS manager stated that due to funding cuts decisions need to be made on where to allocated resources (clinics and staff), target testing, and awareness and education campaigns. So, the chief epidemiologist would like for two reports to be generated: a annual brief and a four year summary report. The four year data was recently finalized and cleaned and it is now your task to create the four year summary report. You’ve been a great help in providing recommendations for both a commissioner and the health director. Now you will need to prepare a report that really tests your surveillance knowledge and skills.
NOTE: the purpose of this report is to GUIDE prioritization of resources for the AHS program to better serve the community.
This report covers the following course goals:
** Assess quality of data collected from surveillance system
** Analyze and Interpret surveillance data
** Create data reports and determine data dissemination methods to best suite stakeholders
Analyze the Summerville County STI data (attached) and create a four year summary report for the years 2012-2015. You will need to submit the following:
1) final surveillance report (3-5 pages ) and a brief statement (1-2 pages) addressing the framework for communicating surveillance information including an explanation of the data analysis done (noting any errors in the data found and how resolved), presentation of data and intended manner of report dissemination.The report and explanation should be no more than 7 page in length total.
NOTE: These two documents must be submitted via Turnitin as ONE document.
2) Excel file demonstrating analysis completed. As Turnitin will only allow for ONE file to be submitted, please send your instructor your Excel file via Canvas e-mail.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
