W1: Public Health Problem

Public service announcements (PSA) are one way in which public health practitioners seek to respond to risks to health by informing the public and altering risky behaviors. PSAs address one of the 10 essential public health services, to inform, educate, and empower people about health issues. Throughout this course, you will create a public service announcement (PSA) for a public health problem of your choice. For this assignment, you will begin working on your PSA by selecting the health problem and beginning your analysis of the issue.


Use the readings for the module, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet to research current public health problems.

In 3 pages:
