Absolutely Zero PLAGIARISM



Think about your current knowledge of public health and the work you will do in your practicum. The goal of your practicum and public health work is to promote prevention to improve population health and maintain healthy communities.

  • As public health professionals, how can we impact the behavior of an entire community?
  • What are examples of literature that explains the various options for behavioral change at a community level?
  • What is one specific health behavior among the population you are studying or serving during your practicum that could be changed or improved through your practicum experience?
  • How does the relationship of the identified health behavior to the structure and function of health care, public health, and regulatory systems in your practicum community compare to those relationships in another American city and another country?
  • How do we encourage healthy lifestyles and promote community safety? How might you make a long-lasting impact on proactive community health behavior? Provide and cite evidence to show that your approach could be transformative.
  • What potential problems do you see with your approach?
  • What additional information would you need to answer these questions more thoroughly?
