o    Identify two key health care-related challenges to this population, such as increases in health care costs, increases in prescription drug costs, the need for in-home medical care and et cetera. Provide factual evidence obtained through research.

o    Describe how a chronic disease wellness program may affect the health care costs for this population group. Will it increase health care costs or decrease health care costs? Why? Explain and share specific examples / apply factual evidence and research in your reasoning.

Please, be specific in identifying these needs; think in terms related to your selected facility. List specific marketing strategies that your selected facility could use to communicate with your selected population group. Be specific here. Apply research.
