The SLP assignment for this course will entail becoming familiar with Healthy People initiative. To the end, you will be asked to view a series of videos presenting the key components of Healthy People 2020, illustrating how these are being implemented, noting data sources available to monitor progress toward achievement of Healthy People goals objectives, and recommending strategies for incorporating Healthy People into the work we do as health educators.

What are the “interagency workgroups” to which the speaker refers, and what is their role?
Where can one go to find a complete overview of each Healthy People 2020 objective?
What type on information on leading health indicators is provided by the National Center for Health Statistics?
How is progress toward Healthy People 2020 targets measured?
