TOPIC: ***DEPRESSION AMONG AFRICAN AMERICANS (MALE & FEMALE)***

PLEASE READ RUBRIC AND FOLLOW EACH INSTRUCTION WORD FOR WORD

Infographic and paper: Use course readings, assignments, documentaries, lectures, and/or news to submit a 3-page paper and create an infographic on a real-world health issue of your choosing. Paper must be double-spaced, in Times New Roman font, with 1-inch margins all around. Include in-text references and a reference page for any materials you cite using APA citation formatting. Midterm paper must be submitted on Canvas prior to class, on its due date (Oct 10th), and the infographic must be shared during class on the midterm due date during a poster session. You can choose to work in pairs or solo on this midterm. If you work in pairs, you will receive the same grade for the paper and infographic. The health issue you select must be policy driven. Students are required to present about the issue they researched as well as an infographic in class on Oct 10th during a poster session.

The goal of this midterm project is to inform, educate, and empower people about health issues. This is a core function of policy development and is the 3rd function of the 10 Essential Public Health Services.

Writing your Paper:

Using the Centers for Disease Control Policy Analytical Framework as a guide, students must follow key steps and conclude with a strategy/policy for addressing this issue. htttppss://wvvw.cdc.gov/policy/analysis/process/docs/cdcpolicyanalyticalframework.pdf

Include in-text references and a reference page for any materials you cite using APA citation formatting.

Creating your Infographic:

Students can use htttppss://piktochart.comm/ to design their infographic and have it sent to Staples or another printing company for printing. I recommend having it printed as an 18”x24” poster. You can then mount it on foam core/foam board.

You can also choose to use a trifold.

Students must translate issue/problem, data, and policy strategy/call to action, and what the impact of this policy will be in a concise infographic, and be able to respond to questions about his/her topic area.

You must answer the following questions in your midterm paper!

Policy Framework – Answer the following questions in your paper)

1.Identify problem or issue (be specific)

a. Create a problem statement (frame the problem in a way that lends itself to potential policy solutions)

b. Synthesize data on the characteristics of problem or issue

i. burden of people affected (how many people it affects)

ii. frequency (how often)

iii. severity (how serious the problem is)

iv. scope (the range of outcomes it affects) * (does it cause or contribute to cancer, stroke, heart attacks, obesity, etc.)

v. identify the economic impact

vi. identify any gaps in data

2.Identify and describe appropriate policy solutions

a. Assess policy options

i. Research possible policy options and include at least two of them in your paper. If only one policy option exists, include it and state that there are not any additional policy options. If no policy options currently exist, state this and make policy recommendations. If policy options exist, but are not included, students will have points deducted.

ii. Review literature on topic and cite, survey best practices, and do an environmental scan to understand what others are doing. In other words, find out what programs, policies, regulations, and/or laws exist to address this issue, describe what is being done and by whom.

iii. How have these options impacted morbidity and mortality?

iv. What is the cost to implement these policies?

b. Prioritize policy option(s)

i. Identify the policy you have selected to address your issue and state why. (Was it more financially feasible? Did it have the highest impact on morbidity and mortality?) While you may include more than one policy option or strategy to address this issue, I encourage…
