RE: Looking Ahead
We are doing long-range planning for the agency. Please submit a two-page report describing the historical achievements in prevention efforts facilitated by local, federal and professional organizations. In your report, identify the health issues of the 19th and 20th centuries and the social factors that influenced public health communication in addressing these health issues. Predict what you think will be the major health issues for the next decade. Which of these can be most impacted by health education and health promotion?
The weekly Assignments are meant to replicate actual communications between supervisor and employee in a public health organization. These weekly emails are requests from your “Boss” and should be treated as such. In other words, there are no strict formatting or length requirements. However, you will be graded on your professionalism as well as your content. Your instructor will be “grading” you as a supervisor, so, do your best!
