This week’s assignment will serve as the final project. It is a comprehensive exercise designed to integrate the topics you have learned during this course into a personal health promotion community project.
Community health programs are important for promoting healthy behaviors in individuals, families, and communities. By implementing health programs that target specific community needs, providers can influence patient behavior changes and improve long-term health. As you finalize your community health program plan, consider the various factors that contribute to the effective design of health programs. Keep in mind that community needs and resources should drive your planning, implementation, and evaluation.
