Community Health Nursing

1. Compare characteristics of your selected modern day public health leader(s) with a public health reformer or nurse leader from history. What characteristics do they share? In what ways do they differ (evaluate the core functions of the public health figures both past and present)? Be specific in your response rather than provide generalizations. 2. Now identify 2 top public health priorities that the APHA has undertaken and explain why these issues are so important in today’s society. 3. Next discuss a continuing public health problem that has historically been a significant public health issue and is still an issue today. Why do you think this health problem remains a focus of public health even today? Why has the problem been difficult to eradicate?
