dc.description.abstractThis paper provides insight into the health status of the Pimlico neighborhood of Baltimore City, Maryland using a windshield survey model. Demographic characteristics of the community are presented, including population size, racial/ethnic background, average age, sex, and family status. Socioeconomic indicators are discussed, such as average income, educational attainment, and available educational institutions. The availability of social, health, transportation, religious, and recreational resources is emphasized. Major health indicators are presented, including infant mortality rate, average life expectancy, and leading causes of death in the community. Strengths and weaknesses of the community are highlighted, with particular attention placed on the impact of presented weaknesses on the vulnerability and health status of the community. Significant weaknesses discussed include high homicide rates, poor educational attainment related to chronic absenteeism, and a high infant mortality rate. Focus is placed on the effects of chronic absenteeism and poor educational outcomes. The negative impact of chronic absenteeism on children’s health status is presented, with proposed community health nursing interventions to reduce absenteeism discussed. The core functions of community health are used to guide the discussion of the community health nurse’s (CHN) role in supporting interventions aimed at improving school attendance in the Pimlico community.en_US
