MPH635 Assignment #2: Program Approach

15% of course grade / 30 points 

You will formulate and communicate a theory-based approach to your health program. The approach must be grounded in existing knowledge about health promotion theory and known effective interventions, account for community priorities, and include clear and measurable goals and objectives. Use as wide a variety of resources as you can find to provide a complete explanation of your intended approach and justification. 

The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate your ability to justify the approach you intend to take to your program and its likelihood of achieving a positive health effect.
