Communities have different public health issues and concerns that must be addressed. An example of a specific application might include the Rural Healthy People 2010 – Models for Practice, which is a compilation of best practices in addressing rural health concerns, as seen on the Public Health Texas A&M Health Science Center website.
Choose a geographic community and describe ongoing health activities specific to identified health concerns.
Present a 12- to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation that identifies a local public health issue and how it relates to nationally identified objectives by using the following criteria:
•Identify sources of data the community uses to assess targeted determinants of health in support of these activities.
•Describe the data collection standards used to determine population health concerns in this community, such as disease definition, specified populations, and defined time periods.
•Describe how the data sources could be used to determine the focus of health care in the community–individual or the whole population–including implications for targeted populations.
•Explain health care determinants that impact population health.
