Equity Community Health Center Logo
You are an outreach coordinator for the Equity Community Health Center, a primary care medical, dental, and counseling clinic in Los Angeles, California, that is committed to providing high-quality and low-cost care to patients regardless of their health insurance status or ability to pay. Equity Community Health Center has served the communities of the greater Los Angeles area since 1968 and remains committed to its mission to provide quality, patient-centered care in an effort to reduce health disparities, promote community health, and empower individuals to take an active role in their health and wellness.
You’re beginning the conception and initiation phases of Equity Community Health Center’s strategic initiatives for 2028. Prior to determining the project teams, your manager wants you to review some of the basic components of the project management life cycle to ensure that everyone in the department is in agreement about the importance of project planning. You need to create a presentation that provides a brief overview of the phases of the project management life cycle and reinforces the importance of planning to the success of a project. Prior to the second meeting, your manager has asked you to draft a project charter for one of Equity Community Health Center’s strategic initiatives for 2028. This charter will change as you and your team discuss the project in more detail, but the draft will start these conversations.
