Health Behavior Presentation



Each student will prepare a 5-minute presentation (minimum 10 slides) explaining one specific health behavior listed below and highlighted in purple. Since this is an essential portion of the course material, these presentations must be clear and professional. Include a transcript of the narration in the “notes” section of the pp slides. The narration should be detailed and NOT verbatim of the talking points on the slide. Your notes should elaborate on the talking points on each slide. The professor will base grading on clarity of the presentation, accuracy and completeness of the information, application of a model, evaluation and original insight. The presentation should include:

· Title slide (with your name) (SLIDE 1)

· Briefly define the health behavior (SLIDE 2)

· Briefly explain the public health significance of the behavior (i.e. provide statistics on the prevalence of the behavior, the population most at risk, etc.) (SLIDE 3)

· List at least two risk factors leading to the behavior (SLIDE 4)

· A  risk factor is any attribute, characteristic or exposure of an individual that increases the likelihood of developing a disease or injury. Some examples of the more important  risk factors are underweight, unsafe sex, high blood pressure, tobacco and alcohol consumption, and unsafe water, sanitation and hygiene (WHO, 2015).

· Indicate at least two health consequences/effects/impacts of the behavior (SLIDE 5)

· Health effects (or  health impacts) are changes in health resulting from exposure to a source.  For example, several health consequences of smoking include heart disease, stroke, lung cancer.  See the following link for additional information:

· cdc.gov

· Apply the constructs of an  appropriate behavior model or theory that we've learned about in the course. (SLIDES 6 and 7 [more if needed])

· Describe methods for modifying the behavior (SLIDE 8)

· Professional References (look for websites with .gov, .edu, or use the textbook, or peer reviewed journal articles) (SLIDE 9)
