Your supervisor, the president of a major nonprofit global health organization (you can use one mentioned in the Power Point), told you she wants to partner with an organization in the United States (do some research to identify one) to address a problematic health policy related to children’s health.
Your supervisor asks you to write a formal letter to the other organization explaining to them why they should partner with your organization to tackle this issue.
The letter should include a description of the population and the health issue, how it relates to the other organization’s mission statement, the policy you want to change or enact, and the benefits of creating this partnership.
In order to earn full credit, this letter has to be persuasive.
