public health program planning models regarding nutrition H e a l t h M e d i c a l

This assignment will assist with the planning component of your concept paper using the PRECEDE – PROCEED model (PPM) as a standard framework. According to (DiClemente, Salazar & Crosby, 2018, p. 42), “the PPM embodies an ecological approach to changing health behavior…with full recognition that systems/environments enable, control and limit health behavior.”

In this paper you will show how the PPM will support the planning phase of your conceptual public health initiative. Consider one of the public health concerns below or propose a health behavior issue that is currently trending locally or nationally.

  • Cigarette Smoking
  • Alcoholism among Teens
  • Childhood Obesity
  • Lack of Exercise and Physical Activity
  • Imbalanced Diet

For this assignment, address the following in your paper:

  1. Briefly describe the selected health behavior, including information on why it is problematic.
  2. Use Table 2-1 on page 32 of the DiClemente, Salazar & Crosby text to address the core questions related to the use of theory to identify program objectives. Include this segment in a table within your paper, addressing What, Who, How, Why and When, and identify a guiding theory for your public health initiative.
  3. Use the information provided in Chapter 3 to briefly describe the eight phases of the PPM in the context of your proposed public health initiative.
  4. Describe the overall impact of the health behavior on nutrition and wellness.
  5. Describe how your faith practices might impact your role as a health promoter and educator for the selected health behavior.

Use the PRECEDE-PROCEED model described on slide #4 of the PowerPoint and page 43 of the textbook as a guide for your project. You are encouraged to do an internet search for examples of public health program planning models regarding nutrition and wellness. (Please use these as examples only). Be sure to present your framework so anyone within your fictional organization could pick up where you left off.
