3 discussions and one assignment


I have three discussion and one assignment

all discussion should be 150 original initial post and two replies of 50-60 words each and one assignment is 150 words only.

Module 5 Discussion

Consider the issue of man-made threats in the United States. Have some fun with this discussion post this week, and think about the various threats discussed this week. Please describe which threat you think is the most likely to happen in terms of contributing to, or causing our zombie outbreak. Do you think it would be an intentional or unintentional event, and why? Justify your response with details using the lecture slides, websites, videos, and readings. Please response to a single classmate’s response as well. 

Module 12 Discussion

Define what is meant by the term “built environment”. From the assigned reading or videos, select one illustrated case study in the built environment that demonstrates best practices to promote population health. Describe the built environment structural features along with access to health promoting resources and discuss how the built environment modification in the community exemplifies principles for building healthy places. 

Module 12 Assignment

Review the assigned readings on injuries in the textbook (Jacobsen, 2019) and the GBD Compare Viz Hub website (IHME, 2018).

  1. Use the interactive IMHE display to identify the leading cause of death in 2017 in a given country of your choice (different from U.S.) in terms of injuries (hint: the color green – lower right corner – denotes causes in the injury category)? Be sure to select “Deaths” (not YLDs or DALYs or YLDs) as the Measure. Therefore, select “All” as the Age, and then: a) “Both” as the Sex in the “Settings.”
  2. Write in a paragraph form a) the country chosen and most lethal inquiry b) at least one important fact from the other assigned readings about the burden of this specific type of injury, c) one intervention recommended for reducing the number of deaths.

Responses should be approximately 150-300 words. Include at least two different in-text reference citations. In-text reference citations e.g., (Author, Date) should be used for attribution when summarizing content (see the guidance provided in the Additional Resources folder on the course home page). A full reference citation is not required for this assignment.
