Planning Models

TO: Agency Health Education and Health Promotion Personnel

FROM: The Director

RE: Planning Models

I am concerned that we always seem to be a day late and a dollar short in implementing our health promotion programs.

I’d like for you to develop a PERT chart for a community based smoking cessation program.

I also am not sure that the diagnosis stage of our planning is adequate. Use the PRECEED model to prepare an educational diagnosis of lung cancer.

Thank you.

2nd assignment

Your Marketing Plan & Budget

For your public health program, develop a marketing strategy that would best fit your target audience. What would you do specifically? Describe your marketing plan using the plan described in your Unit 4 reading. Who would you need to involve in your marketing strategy? Any approval needed? (Put ‘cost’ in your budget below).

In addition, create a mock budget for your program. What resources will you need? Staff, supplies, space, marketing, incentives, etc? Please use the sample budget template in ‘Doc Sharing”’ to create your proposed budget.

Present your assignment as a 2-3 page Microsoft Word document. Please include APA-style formatted references in the body of the paper and as a reference list. Upload the document to appropriate Unit dropbox by the due date.

do it on a separate page.

Biology in the News

The biology concepts presented in this course encourage you to make the connection between textbook biology and biology that appears in daily newspapers and weekly periodicals. This assignment will encourage you to make the connection between the textbook and the world you live in and to recognize how science and technology influence and contribute to modern culture.

This assignment is worth 20 points. Late work will count half credit.

Select an article from a current newspaper, periodical, or the Internet which correlates with the content of one or more units of instruction covered in the course. Appropriate sources are any major newspaper, news website, scientific magazines, or any other major news source for the public.

Tips on choosing an article

– Article MUST relate to content presented in class

– Article is an appropriate length for the assignment (not a tiny blurb, not 10 pages long)

– Article MUST BE less than 3 months old

– Article is news, not reference material, and from a reputable source

– Article MUST be readable by the general public, not scholarly.

Your essay should consist of the following three items:

1) A cover page, including your name, course and section number, date and instructor name

in the upper right corner, the title of the article centered on the page, and works cited or bibliography at the bottom of the cover page.

2) The body of your essay, which should consist of three carefully prepared paragraphs, each a

minimum of 4 sentences, double spaced.

Paragraph one: Summarize the article with the who?, what?, when?, where?, why?, and how? of the main ideas in the article.

Paragraph two: Correlate the article with a unit of instruction covered in class. Give specific information you learned in class, citing the text and or lab manual sources, and explain how it helps you understand the article, or contradicts the article.

Paragraph three: Give your personal reaction and explain why the content of this article is important to you, your friends, or family. This involves relating the topic of the article to real life, by answering two or more of the following questions.

1. Did the article make you aware of things you had not thought of before?

2. Did the article change your mind or feelings about the topic?

3. Was the article about something you have experienced personally?

4. Did the article address any ethical, value, or public policy issues?

5. Do you agree or disagree with arguments presented in your article? Explain. 6. If you were “in charge”, how would you proceed with the information in the article?

3) A copy of the article must be attached, either copy and paste at the end of the article, or attach as a separate article.

This assignment must be your own work. No plagiarism will be tolerated. Papers that the instructor determines contain plagiarism in any part will be given a zero for the entire paper. See for more information on what is plagiarism. Do NOT cut and paste information from any source into your paper. Use your own words to relay information from the article, text or any other source. Then cite the source of that information using a standard citation format.

If you choose this topic you CANNOT write on the hominin you were assigned for your group project. This paper should include: their place in time- both a geological age, but also where they fall in the evolution of hominins; and geographic locations where specimens have been found. You may also want to discuss social behaviors we know to be associated with the species, a basic overview of their anatomy and how it is similar or different from modern humans. After you choose your hominin you need to choose a thesis topic such as tool making, art, cannibalism, or hunting. If you choose a single topic (Choice 2) you may discuss multiple hominins in the one paper (e.g. the evolution of stone tools, or possible seafaring by early hominins). This paper must include a discussion of at least 4 different sites or specimens (these can be 4 of your 5 required sources).

Program Evaluation

Throughout the past few weeks, you have been designing a health promotion program that targets the most significant health problem within your community. This week, you will design an evaluation plan (process, impact, and outcome) for your program. Please describe what you would do for your process (formative), impact (summative) and outcome (summative) evaluations. How would you capture the data needed for each level of evaluation? What do you expect the data to reveal and how would this advance your health promotion program? Review the Watson workbook for examples of how evaluation plans.


1.Explain the role of health education in health promotion programs.

2. Pretend that you are a coordinator of health education who must defend his/her program to the local board of education. Make the case using your philosophy as well as practical benefits of health education, including economic, academic, and others.

3. What is the importance of “health educator” being approved as a distinct classification by the Standard Occupational Classification Policy Review Committee?

4. Discuss the nature of communities that make churches and other faith community settings ideal for promoting health.

5. Visit a local or state affiliate of the Epilepsy Foundation of America, American Lung Association, American Cancer Society, Planned Parenthood Federation, or other community health organization. Obtain information about any health education programs that are offered. These should be complete programs offered by the national office to affiliates rather than special one-time programs offered by the affiliates. Determine the following:

a. Target group for the program

b. Goals and objectives of the program

c. Sample activities or lessons in the program

d. Formal evaluation of the program

Normal anatomy of the major body system effected (Criteria 3)


This is a basic APA style title page that you can utilize to help with formatting. This does not count towards page count!

Name of paper will go here

For help with APA style formatting check out:

Students Name

Professors Name

Name of Course/College

Utilize Times New Roman with a 12pt Font! No exceptions!

Margins need to be 1” all around, do not alter them.

Introduction (Criteria 1 & 2):

In this section, you will describe the pathophysiology (statistics about it, background information etc). Give as much information as you can about it, but be sure it is relevant information and not just filler. This section generally should be 2-3 paragraphs in length.

This section should cover Criteria 1 & 2 from the Case Study Instructions and Rubric

Be sure that in-text citations follow APA guidelines.

Normal anatomy of the major body system effected (Criteria 3):

In this section, you will describe what is considered normal anatomy for your particular pathophysiology. For example, if you are discussing a disease related to the brain describe what is normal for the brain from an anatomy standpoint. This should take a paragraph or two to complete this section.

Normal physiology of the major body system effected (Criteria 4):

Same as the previous section but instead of explaining the anatomy you will be explaining the physiology.

Mechanism of Pathophysiology (Criteria 5):

This section is likely going to be the most in depth and longest section. This is where you will explain your particular pathophysiology from an anatomy and physiology standpoint. In the previous two sections you explained what is considered normal, in this section I want you to explain what the pathophysiology is doing that is causing these issues, how the anatomy is affected and how it has an effect on the physiology of that particular system.

Prevention (Criteria 6):

In this section, you will explain how your pathophysiology could be prevented.

Treatment (Criteria 7):

In this section, you will explain how your pathophysiology is commonly treated.

Clinical Relevance (Criteria 8):

In this section, you will cover the clinical relevance or significance.


Wrap everything up. A good academic research paper should bring everything full circle with a solid conclusion.


This final reference page needs to include any and all references you utilized to find information about your particular topic. Remember, the information needs to come from academic/scholarly resources. is a great search engine to help you find academic resources. Sites such as Wikipedia are great to use as a reference/starting point to locate good articles; however, they cannot be used as a primary source of information.

***Tip: If you find information in Wikipedia, scroll down to the bottom of the page, you can usually find academic articles that authors have utilized to complete the information. Most of the time you can simply click on that article for a direct link, or simply search for the name of the article in our Library Database to find a complete text.

***Be sure that your in-text citations are accurate and follow APA formatting, again utilize the Purdue Owl website to help with that.
