In this Discussion Board, consider the environmental factors that have influenced the marketing function at the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) in the last few years. You should use the material in Chapters 1, 2 or 3 to think about environmental (uncontrollable factors). Find an article (from an acceptable source, such as a newspaper or Journal, no blogs, social media or poorly documented net sources) that addresses one of these factors and report back a summary of that article, clearly stating in your narrative how it affects marketing (one or more of the 4 P’s) within the CDC. Use whatever library sources/web search resources and search current articles (last four years). Cite your source using APA referencing style (which is the same style you must use in your paper). Also respond to the posts of 2 other students.
In summary:
1. Find an article that represents an environmental factor that impacts CDC.
2. Begin your post by citing your reference in APA style.
3. Provide a brief summary of the article that clearly states the environmental factor and how it impacts the CDC, including which of the 4 P’s does it impacts…it could be more than one.
