SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTIONS TO PUBLIC HEALTHSeptember 5, 2019 Off All,
This is a continuation of your Final Assignment. In Week 3, you worked on Significant Contributions to Public Health Final Assignment Part 1. This week, Part 2 involves an analysis of how your individual’s contribution from the past continues to contribute to today’s public health system, and how it might guide future work within the industry. As you recall, in Week 3, you researched an individual and their contribution to community and public health. Now, you need to review the feedback given to you from Week 3 and make the necessary revisions to Part 1 of this project. Your Week 3 assignment should have included each of the following elements: Describe your selected person’s experience. Analyze the climate of the time period in terms of political, socioeconomic, environmental, and technological context in which this person worked. Examine the personal beliefs of your person that prompted this work. Examine how this individual overcame any adversities to succeed. Describe the final outcome of this individual’s contribution to community or public health. Explain what this person’s contribution did for overall community or public health at the time. Explain why this contribution was so important at that particular point in history. Use the outline below to organize your paper or presentation. Do not type the “Steps” into your paper or presentation. Rather, formulate a well thought out analysis with logical transitions as you would a professional paper or presentation. The grading rubric will be your guide for all the points you need to address in your final submission. Research and critical thinking is a large component of this project. You will curate resources to support your statements using proper APA Style (Links to an external site.). This week you will be adding the second half to your project by completing the following steps: Step 1: Integrate Significant Contributions to Public Health Final Assignment Part 1 from Week 3, including any revisions based on feedback you received. Step 2: Examine the individual’s contribution to community or public health. Step 3: Analyze the impact of your individual’s contribution on today’s public health system. TIP: You are asking, “What happened as a result of this contribution at the national and community level?” For example, some elements you could address include: Did it change attitudes? Did it change protocols and policies? Did behavior change result? Did it add or eliminate laws? Step 4: Analyze how this contribution is still relevant today. TIP: Was this contribution only applicable at the time it occurred, or is it still applied today? Why or why not? Explain your response. Step 5: Examine how this contribution could support or be expanded for future community and public health benefits. TIP: Using solid critical thinking, look at the historical value of the contribution and examine how it could be used for the future (is it applicable to another health issue, can it lead to more policy change, could it promote advocacy work or public health laws, etc.).
