key components of Healthy People

The SLP assignment for this course will entail becoming familiar with Healthy People initiative. To the end, you will be asked to view a series of videos presenting the key components of Healthy People 2020, illustrating how these are being implemented, noting data sources available to monitor progress toward achievement of Healthy People goals objectives, and recommending strategies for incorporating Healthy People into the work we do as health educators. After watching the video, address the following questions: How do you plan to use Healthy People 2020 in your work as a new health educator? What specific resources (web-based or otherwise) will you likely use? Please list and briefly describe each. Thinking back to the Leading Health Indicator you identified as a primary concern in Module 1, how will you track progress toward achievement of the corresponding Healthy People 2020 objectives? (The indicators that were of primary concern were physical activity, nutrition and obesity, health services, and clinical preventative service)
