Diversity is the one true thing we all have in common
Coordinated and collaborative efforts to reduce health disparities require culturally appropriate strategies to create the changes necessary to improve public health.
To complete this Application Assignment, you will write a 3- to 4-page paper that includes your P.E.R.I. information from Week 4. Select a strategy (consciousness raising, community development, social action, health promotion, media advocacy, or policy change) from the Promoting Health Equity (pp. 58–75) document to create, and describe, the approach and theory of behavior change you recommend to create a change in the at-risk population you identified. In addition to your answers to questions 1–5 from the Week 4 P.E.R.I. Application Assignment, be sure to add a description of:
- The hypothetical community you will work with, including cultural issues that might impact your chosen health condition
- The theory related to health behavior you selected
- The community (or international) public health organizations you would involve in the planning, and implementation, of this intervention
- How you would apply your theory-based behavior change strategy to improve the social determinants of the health issue in this community
