You will have an “inside” look into the organization of a local health department and gain insight into the responsibilities of the people working in the core areas of public and community health. You will also become familiar with two of the greatest examples of public health in action today, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Healthy People 2020 initiative. You will gain insight into health-related goals that have been developed to address the identified needs of communities on a local and global scale.
Post a video log (Vlog) of yourself presenting a community health intervention example that 1) targets a specific population in a developing country and addresses one of the WHO Millennium goals or 2) targets a specific population in the United States and addresses one of the Healthy People 2020 overarching goals. The intervention you describe could be one you are proposing or a real-life example of a current or recent (past 2 years) intervention.
Your Vlog assignment must include the following:
