I’m working on a health & medical writing question and need the explanation and answer to help me learn.
familiarize yourself with a current public health issue and a specific target population that is being affected. You will identify a public health problem (national or international) and describe why it is considered a public health problem. You will also describe the impact the problem is having on a specific target population (e.g., gender group, geographic location, racial or ethnic group, age group, religious group, or sexual orientation group) and explain why addressing this public health issue is a priority for improving the overall health of the target population.
- Summarize your public health issue with respect to the community or state to which it is pertinent.
- Discuss why it is considered a public health issue. Be sure to support your claims with research.
- Identify the population that is most at risk for this issue. Be sure to support your claims with research.
