You have been asked to prepare a 30-minute PowerPoint presentation for new members of the Board of Health in your state. These new members are not public health professionals. They require definitions, an overview of the historical background of public health, examples of the workforce, core functions, core concepts and controversies, basic themes and messages, and the organization, functions, and responsibilities of public health at the three levels. They also need some information on the basic science behind public health and the data sources used. Some insight into the areas of infectious and chronic disease and the role of genomics in public health has been requested. Furthermore, you have been specifically asked to include a few community statistics and health data from the state in order to provide real-life examples for the board members.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 15, 2020, 10:45 pm ad1c9bdddf
