HEALTH POLICY PROJECT
Introduction
Health
policies deal with real-life problems.
After taking this class, the student should be more equipped to work with
health policies on any level, including both the clinical and administrative
side of health care.  There are many ways to approach policymaking from
different angles within the context of your career in health.  
Assignment
You
are the top policy executive of a community health organization seeking to
create a health policy to deal with a specific critical health issue in your
community.  Pick a major health issue to research and propose policies to be implemented on the health
issue in your organization. The entire effort culminates in a DB presentation
and a written paper with a comprehensive policy brief.  The project should specifically focus on the social,
legal, and political contexts in which health care organization exists and
adapts, with emphasis on the U.S. system.  One goal of this class is to
help students understand how communities and providers can participate in
developing and implementing policies on institutional, local, state, and
federal levels.
The project focuses on
different factors in the spectrum of disease prevention, i.e., influencing government
policy and legislation, changing your organizations practices, fostering
coalitions and networks with other organizations, educating providers as well
as promoting community and individual education and strengthening individual
knowledge and skills. Each student will present a brief discussion in the DB for
the class discussion on the elements selected for their health issue.  Each DB presentation will include an overview
of the health issue in their population, include relevant data, culminating in
development of a working policy to guide the organization.  Students will provide feedback to their
classmates on their project.
Each student will also prepare
a written synopsis of their project. All citations must be in APA format for
the presentation, policy and individual paper. 
For full credit the individual student synopsis must be complete within
the outline below, 12 TMS Font with 1 inch margins.  References are included on a separate page.

CONCLUSION
The topic I chose for my policy proposal is childhood obesity. I will discuss environmental factors such as not having access to playgrounds in low-income areas. Psychological effect on children from bullying and low esteem. Childhood obesity can have long lasting health issues such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and joint issues. Also, the long-term effect on a child will be chronic diseases that could shorten their life expectancy. Ther should be policies in place to help protect our children from becoming obese.
