Influencing Public Healthcare
You have been asked to serve on an advisory committee for your states Department of Public Health (Iowa). You have a meeting coming up and have been asked to present a brief recommendation to a current public health initiative being considered. You are informed that your recommendation needs to be supported by data or evidence. 1. Go to your states public health website and explore the departments priorities, initiative, etc. Choose a public health initiative that interests you, and that becomes your advisory committee topic. You have some freedom here to create your own scenario, add any challenges or information that would influence decisions. 2. Set the scene by describing your committee and the direction the committee has been given..
