Health Care Interview Paper – 100 points
The goal of this assignment is for each student to explore how "real people" access health care and how this might have changed over time. Interview 3 separate individuals representing three generations (parents, grandparents, your generation or your children's generation) and learn how they:
accessed health care
paid for health care
where they received their health care
how they viewed their health care and health care providers
what changes they have seen in the health care system
any other facts or information you obtain from the interviewees
In your conclusion, provide a summary of the similarities and differences noted between the generations.
This paper should be about 3-5 pages in length with appropriate referencing and in APA format. This assignment is worth 100 points (10% of your grade)and is due in Week 3.
The sources you will be citing will be the people you interviewed. If you use direct quotes, you are to cite the source immediately following the sentence it was used in. Also, you are required to have a works cited page with your source information.
Citations for Interviews and Personal Communication

For personal communication, you should give the author's full name (first and middle initials followed by last name), the kind of communication, followed by the date of communication.
