Question Description

Most community action plans can benefit from recruiting partners—individuals or organizations that might help with the solution to the public health issue. These partners may have money, special tools or skills, and other resources.


Create a list of at least 10 local partners who might be willing to help you implement or develop your own Community Action Plan. Your list must include the potential partner’s name, comprehensive contact information (job title, address, phone, website, and any assistants’ names), and a short explanation of why you think he/she/it would be useful to your project. List why you think that particular partner might be interested in joining your effort—that is, what is the benefit to the partner in doing so?

Your partners could come from the following (don’t be limited by this list):

  • Government officials (state, regional, local or federal)
  • Local health/public health department agent(s)
  • Non-profits or non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Think broadly. For example, consider national and local organizations (e.g., men’s and women’s organizations, schools, government-funded services, and volunteer organizations).
  • Businesses. Businesses often help fund or implement community projects.
  • Schools. Colleges or universities may have grants, special departments, or clubs/organizations.
  • Churches or faith-based organizations

Instructions:

  • Write a well-organized list that is a 2-3 page paper, not including the title and reference pages, which are required.
  • The paper must be formatted correctly using APA style. Remember, all research material used in your paper must be paraphrased and include an in-text citation.
  • Your paper must be properly cited and formatted according to APA GUIDELINES.
  • Be sure you utilize your text appropriately as a reference and cite at least one other credible external reference such as a website or journal article to support your proposed resolution of the case.
  • Your external sources can be trade publications , government information, newspaper articles, or scholarly or peer-reviewed.

Running head: COMMUNITY ACTION PLAN Kirshay Mobley BIO 201– Public Health and the Environment Colorado State University – Global Campus Harvey Kitzman Mod 2 Portfolio Milestone: Community Action Plan March 24, 2019 1 COMMUNITY ACTION PLAN 2 The Community Action Plan In their career, public health professions often engage in programs which seek to improve the health status of their immediate community. to gain a better insight on how to engage the community and improve their overall health status, I choose to work on Project Option #2 - The Community Action Plan. For this project, I will cove obesity in Georgia as the public health issue of concern. Over the years, the rate of obesity in the state of Georgia has been on the rise which makes it a major concern. From 10.1% in 1990, the rate of obesity in Georgia has risen significantly and now stands at approximately 31.6%. As a major predisposing factor to many diseases and conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, there is a need to address the rising number of obese people in the population within the state. Other than this, obesity has significantly contributed to the increased medical costs across the state, and addressing this will see a significant fall in overall cost associated with delivering health care. Option #2: The Community Action Plan: Written Report and Handout Your Portfolio Project for this class is a Community Action Plan designed to alleviate or correct a public health issue in your community. Your community can be your business, school, neighborhood, town or city of residence or birth, or county. For Option #2, your Community Action Plan will be a professional portfolio that includes a written report and a handout. Below are some useful sites where you can find examples of the elements of an action plan. http://www.myhio.org/sites/default/files/HIO%20Community%20Action%20Plan%2 02013.pdfhttp://www.epa.gov/communityhealth/ (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. http://www.cityofchicago.org/dam/city/depts/cdph/tobacco_alchohol_and_drug_abuse /LGBTCommunityActionPlanHC.pdf (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. http://assets.thehcn.net/content/sites/arizona/MC_CHA2012.pdf (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. Final Paper Instructions: 1. The final case study should include four sections (Symptoms, Diagnosis, Cure, and Prevention). Each section should be about 1 page in length. Your entire paper must be 4-5 pages in length, not counting the title or reference pages, which must be included. Your paper must follow the APA guidelines. 2. You must cite and integrate at least 2 credible sources in each of the four sections of the paper. You may use readings other than the textbook to meet this requirement. The paper should be based on references to scholarly materials (rather than on introductory textbooks, popular website writings, or musings, for example) and should support your claims with evidence. 3. Incorporate into this final plan any classmates’ critiques that you found useful as well as your instructor’s feedback. 4. List the key community members or partners that you plan on contacting, with an explanation why these individuals or organizations make sense as potential partners. This could include your list of potential partners created in week 4 Critical Thinking Assignment Option #1. 5. Include a special emphasis on either the demographics of the affected population or the economic implications, depending on what Critical Thinking assignment you completed for Week 5. 6. Include a realistic timeline for your plan. Discuss the time needed for campaigning, education, funding, building, and implementation. Use ideas created during week 6 Critical Thinking Assignments, either the option for annotated bibliography or that for the brainstorming draft feedback. Final Instructions for the Handout: 1. The handout that you will distribute to audience members describes the problem in your community and your action plan. 2. You may design this as an outline of your presentation or as a brochure to accompany your presentation with highlighted key points. 3. The purpose of this handout is both to educate the audience about the issue and to help them follow along with you as you speak. Keep in mind that in real life you will have limited time to convince people of the gravity of the situation and to come on board with their support, so you want to be persuasive and get to the key points quickly and effectively. 4. 5. Your handout must be supported by at least two scholarly articles. You may use the readings other than the textbook for this course. Format your handout according to the APA Guidelines. Note: Be sure to submit both your written report and your handout for this assignment. Both files should be uploaded in a single submission to the assignment submission page.

Introduction

The success of community action plans highly depends on the support one gets from the
very society. Ensuring that one can recruit appropriate stakeholders who can support the
community action plan and ensure its implementation successfully is essential. The involvement
of the community and key stakeholders such as government officials and non-governmental
organization who have significant resources are critical in rallying the community as well as the
provision of resources critical to the project implementation (Ruest, Ashton, & Millar, 2017).

department of health. We shall identify key individuals who will be critical to the
implementation of the obesity community action plan in Georgia.
