Healthy People is an initiative of the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) that addresses health challenges and set projections every 10 years, with the main purpose of improving health indicators nationwide. After completing your readings select three objectives/topics (health problems) of Healthy People 2030. For this week you will discuss just one of those topics, your number 1, in your list of 3 topics/ health concerns. This topic in your first position would be the one that you consider the most relevant or concerning in your community. Hence, this one will be also the health problem to focus on for future assignments. Such topic will be “your selected health problem”.
- What are your three selected topics?
- Describe your objective or topic 1. Why is the selected topic important?
- Will this problem lead to secondary conditions or complications?
- What criteria are used to understand the risk of developing such conditions or complications?
