DQ: Public Health Planning Programs
Historically, public health planning was established to increase the success of health programs. It gradually became a significant component for the public health discipline. In the process, theories and models, such as the logic model, became essential tools to include while assessing programs.
Using the readings for this week, the South University Online Library, and the Internet to obtain scholarly articles and materials, research various public health planning programs such as the American Evaluation Association, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Evaluation Exchange, and explore the framework of public health program planning. In this assignment, you will select a particular health issue or health disease (for example, heart disease, cancer, or obesity) to act as a main theme or topic in this course. The main theme or topic you chose in this assignment will be your focus for each assignment throughout the course.
Be sure to check with your instructor to make sure your selected topic is appropriate to use throughout the course.
