Successful Public Health Intervention
The discussion assignment provides a forum for discussing relevant topics for this week on the basis of the course competencies covered.
For this assignment, make sure you post your initial response to the Discussion Area by the due date assigned.
To support your work, use your course and text readings and also use the South University Online Library. As in all assignments, cite the sources in your work and provide references for the citations in the APA format.
Start reviewing and responding to the postings of your classmates as early in the week as possible. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ initial postings. Participate in the discussion by asking a question, providing a statement of clarification, providing a point of view with a rationale, challenging an aspect of the discussion, or indicating a relationship between two or more lines of reasoning in the discussion. Cite the sources in your responses to other classmates. Complete your participation for this assignment by the end of the week.
The essential job of public health agencies is to identify what makes people healthy and what makes them sick, and then take the steps necessary to ensure that the population encounters a maximum of the former and a minimum of the latter. Describe a successful public health intervention in your community, city, and/or state. Describe the public health problem. Discuss the public health intervention/initiative. Use credible research to detail the intervention success and/or failure.
