Advancing Community Health

Advancing Community Health

Policies are put into place with the objective of improving quality of life and civic engagement. But is that always the outcome?

Reflect on the community in which you live.

  1. Identify three issues impacting the health of your community (ex: diabetes, depression, teen pregnancy).
  2. For each issue, briefly summarize the level of government involvement.
  3. Could these issues be improved with more, or less, government involvement?
  4. Propose solutions to address the three issues.
  5. Speak on how scientific research and subsequent policy impacts community health?
  6. Summarize a research article that speaks on the above topics.
