- I’d like for you to develop a PERT chart for a community based smoking cessation program.

Your Marketing Plan & Budget
For your public health program, develop a marketing strategy that would best fit your target audience. What would you do specifically? Describe your marketing plan using the plan described in your Unit 4 reading. Who would you need to involve in your marketing strategy? Any approval needed? (Put ‘cost’ in your budget below).
In addition, create a mock budget for your program. What resources will you need? Staff, supplies, space, marketing, incentives, etc? Please use the sample budget template in ‘Doc Sharing”’ to create your proposed budget.
Present your assignment as a 2-3 page Microsoft Word document. Please include APA-style formatted references in the body of the paper and as a reference list. Upload the document to appropriate Unit dropbox by the due date.
