The purpose of this assignment is for students to create an infographic to educate the community on the impact of a public health issue and make recommendations for policy change.

Research public health issues located on the American Public Health Association (APHA) website, found in the topic Resources under “Topics and Issues.” Select a public health issue related to an environmental issue within the U.S. health care delivery system and examine its effect on a specific population.

Based on the public health issue selected, create an infographic that briefly addresses the following: 

  • Describe the selected public health issue and its impact on the community. Include data that demonstrate the significance of this issue and key risk factors leading to this issue.
  • Discuss ways that the public health issue can be prevented, including key concepts of epidemiology.
  • Explain a policy that currently addresses this issue and the impact of this policy on population outcomes including social justice and health equity.
  • Propose at least one change to existing policies to better address this issue. Support recommendations with appropriate evidence. 
  • Summarize what steps are required to initiate policy change. Identify necessary stakeholders required to initiate policy change (government officials, administrator, etc.) and explain their level of influence. 

Refer to the resource “Images, Infographics and Graphics Resources,” located in the GCU Library, for additional guidance on completing this assignment in the appropriate style.

Cite a minimum of three sources to complete this assignment. Sources must be published within the last 5 years, appropriate for the assignment criteria, and relevant to nursing practice.
