prepare an analysis of a
public health case study requiring synthesis of information and
application of critical thinking skills related to the determinants of
health and strategies for controlling communicable and non-communicable
diseases.

Please read and critically assess the case study titled, José and Jorge-Identical Twins without Identical Lives in Riegelman, page 119 and prepare a 5-7 page essay (double-spaced)
that answers the questions below. You can be creative about how you
organize this—do not simply answer each question, but provide a
well-crafted essay. Please upload to Blackboard by the start of class on
the due date.

  1. Describe how BIG GEMS determinants (see Riegelman, p. 16) contribute
    to the different disease patterns of José and Jorge. Be specific and
    incorporate applicable course material, as appropriate. (discuss the
    effects of at least 5 determinants)
  2. Imagine that you are a
    public health professional, faced with having to decide to focus limited
    resources to improve the health of the population. You have been tasked
    with devising population-level initiatives that may reduce the
    incidence and impact of the diseases affecting people like José and
    Jorge. Select one non-communicable disease AND one communicable
    diseaseexperienced by José and/or Jorge and respond to the questions
    below:

    1. Clearly identify the non-communicable disease and the communicable disease selected.
    2. Describe the factors
      you considered when deciding to focus on these diseases. Discuss
      disease impact, feasibility for addressing, cultural or environmental
      constraints, costs, etc.
    3. Select at least one strategy to address the non-communicable disease (See Riegelman, Ch. 6: screenings, multiple risk factor interventions, cost-effective treatments, research, etc.) and at least one strategy to address the communicable disease (See
      Riegelman, Ch. 7: barrier protections, immunizations, screenings, case
      finding, maximizing effective treatment, etc.). Provide rationale for
      selecting these strategies and describe in a detailed manner how you would apply them on a population-level to address the circumstances contributing to the development of each disease, such as those experienced by José and Jorge. Be specific and incorporate applicable course material, as appropriate.
