Conduct an Internet search of innovative, evidence-based health promotion programs for elderly, non-institutionalized populations. Describe at least one of these programs and discuss how this program could be implemented in a community.


You are not being asked for your personal opinion. Your responses should show critical analysis of the topic and, in addition, must be supported by evidence from the scholarly literature (preferably peer-reviewed nursing journals). Your response must be typed directly into the discussion thread and include citation of sources (in-text and reference list) in APA format. No file can be uploaded.
