Working With Communities To Design Public Health Interventions
Designing interventions to serve communities is the heart of public health practice. Community level models and frameworks suggest strategies and initiatives that are planned and led by organizations and infrastructures. Their mission is to promote and improve health including, but not limited to, schools, worksites, healthcare organizations, community groups, and government agencies. Public health workers must work with these agencies and organizations to promote the best practices for public health.
Using the readings for this module, the Internet, and the Argosy University online library resources, respond to one of the following questions:
How does population or community-based health promotion differ from traditional presentations provided by guest speakers in schools or community events?
What does “picking your battles” mean in the context of a health promotion program?
Write your initial response in approximately 200 words. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
