McLeroy, Norton, Kegler, Burdine, and Sumaya (2003), in “Community-Based Interventions,” provided a useful typology for contrasting perspectives in community focus for incorporation in interventions. The community was presented as a setting, a target, a resource, and an agent. The application of these various perspectives results in a continuum of community-based interventions. In the light of the above statement, describe an affected community in these various roles in a major public health disaster in the U.S. We know of hurricanes Katrina and Rita and wildfires in California. Feel free to cite personal examples or experiences to substantiate your claims.
