Where are we going in public health? Where should we be going? Leaders need to be the champion of managing the tension between current reality and the ideals towards which an organization aims.
This week you will begin to work with your team on the group project. You will discuss how to successfully lead change in the area of a particular public health issue.
As a group, choose a chronic disease/health issue that presents challenges to public health. Suggestions include: obesity, smoking, substance abuse, childhood asthma, HIV/STDs, heart disease, cancers, diabetes, poor pregnancy outcomes, environmental issues (such as lead), poor physical activity, or violence (domestic, guns, or gangs).
Then discuss the following issues as they pertain to this particular chronic issue. It is not necessary that you discuss these in this sequence, but you will need to include all of these areas in your final paper. Do a literature search, as needed, for additional information on this issue.
