The assignment should cover your opinion about the influence that healthcare professionals have in promoting the well-being of society; what role healthcare professionals currently play; what role they should play and what strategies may increase their positive affect on health politics. This assignment can be approached from an academic, clinical or research perspective.

As with all assignments, correct grammar and spelling, readability and creativity is required.
