Addressing public health issues involves identifying concerns through assessments of public health, implementing policies to improve the issues, and securing access to the services needed (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2021). It is a complex process involving politics, government, university research, and many other factors.
As a public health analyst, your leadership team has identified a public health issue in your community. You have been tasked with creating a research summary to provide the leadership team with more information to make an informed plan.
