In this assignment, you will be presenting your community health promotion/risk reduction plan in person or virtually to the agency contact that you interviewed earlier in the semester. The presentation should include your findings from your agency visit, as well as your proposed community health promotion plan. You should prepare this in a concisely worded PowerPoint to be delivered in person or virtually (i.e., Zoom or Skype). If you are unable to meet with the agency, please contact your instructor for alternate arrangements.
The agency representative will be evaluating your presentation. The tool that the agency will use to conduct your evaluation can be found here, or in the Course Resources section of the class.
Presentations should be no longer than 10 minutes. Students are required to work with their practice site mentor in practicing their presentation and obtaining feedback before delivering the presentation to the agency.
If students are unable to meet with the agency representative and deliver their presentation via Zoom or Skype, they must obtain permission from their instructor to send the presentation to the agency electronically. If students need to submit electronically, they are required to send it as a voice over PowerPoint. Instructions on how to create a voice-over PowerPoint for Windows can be found here, and for MAC users can be found here. These instructions can also be found in the course resources area.
Before the presentation is to be presented to the agency, or sent electronically, it must be reviewed by the mentor. If the presentation is being sent to the agency electronically, the mentor and didactic faculty must be cc’d on the email.
Your presentation should include the following:
Identification of the community including demographics and geographic information
Describe the economic conditions, health resources, and environmental conditions
Description of the agency including purpose and funding
Identification of the community health need.
Recommended intervention – that is evidence-based
Plan for implementation to meet the identified need
Resources needed to implement the plan
Spelling grammar and references
A reference list of research used to develop the plan
Your presentation should be given as a PowerPoint with explanations in the notes section if needed. Students who are sending their presentation electronically will need to do a voice-over. The presentation should be limited to 12 slides.
