Question Description

Research a federal governmental organization related to healthcare, such as FEMA, FDA, NIH, CDC, or HHS. It is important to note that some federal agencies are interconnected and work collaboratively; therefore, it might be advantageous to compare and contrast roles and responsibilities of your selected organization.

Based on the above information:

  • Describe the organization’s mission. Relate its stated mission to its activities. Include information to address their roles and responsibilities and provide a clear definition as to the charge of the federal agency.
  • Select one of the following public health issues and describe 2–3 important activities of the organization to address the issue: infant mortality rates, reducing heart disease, infectious diseases, or airborne pathogens.
  • Examine resources utilization by the organization, particularly resources relevant to the selected public health issue.
  • Evaluate the organization’s effectiveness in decreasing/improving the selected public health issue.
  • Propose 2–3 strategies or an action plan of public health priorities for your specific organization in the twenty-first century to create a healthier nation.

To support your work, use your course and textbook readings and also use the South University Online Library. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.
