|Subject Code and Title||PUBH6006: Community Health and Disease Prevention|
|Assessment||Assessment 2: Group Power Point Presentation|
|Length||20 minute group power point presentation and its submission|
|Learning Outcomes||This assessment addresses the following learning outcomes:|
In this Assignment, you will collaborate with other peers and develop a strategy with the aim of preventing obesity in children and youth in a community setting (Please refer Flynn et al.,2006 and by Patton et al., 2009, to help your thinking on this issue).
You need to complete a Group Assignment, which you will do in collaboration with three other colleagues in your subject.
Please note: To prevent social loafing, groups experiencing problems with the level of commitment of individual members are required to contact their course facilitator in the first instance. If problems persist, the group members can grade their colleagues accordingly on the Peer Evaluation Form (available on Blackboard). Marks may be deducted for individual members who do not live up to the expectations of the other group members.
Once you know the group you are in, work out the best way to communicate with your peers for the development of the Assignment (e.g., through zoom, Skype, telephone, and/or email, Google Docs or any other method).

To prepare for this assignment:
The output will be a power point presentation with voice recorded over it for online students,that utilizes your combined professional judgement and the evidence provided in the Learning Resources on Modules 3, 4 to design an obesity prevention strategy.
Research showed that globally 24% of boys and 23% of girls were either overweight or obese as per 2013 data. Healthy canteen policy has a considerable high rate of adoption and positive results for managing the weight of children.
Primary prevention indicated for the adoption of state policy for the adoption of healthy canteen models at schools and results of the research study indicated that 41% of investigated schools have banned red tag food and 72% schools has more than 50% green menu.
Results showed that policy reach, policy adoption and implementation maintenance of the policy had significantly increased, resulting in positive outcomes for students on a large scale.
Each of these phases can be viewed as stages of a process and involves specific tasks that need to be done for the appropriate implementation of the preventive strategy.
These activities would ensure that enough schools were gaps in diet requirements for children can be identified through research are enlisted under the intervention programs. This stage sets the background scenario for project planning.
The aim of this stage involves different community members to the smart canteen intervention strategy as a part of the community engagement agenda. Community engagement is the process of involving different community members accounting for their active participation in decision-making and task execution.
The implementation is a crucial phase and determines the success of an intervention project to a great extent. Implementation stage involves various task and activity related considerations and involves the highest possible costs.
Ongoing management of the program is necessary for successful outcomes. As the program is a community engagement initiative for addressing overweight and obesity problems in school children, management for a major part is dependent on family support.
Evaluation involves the process of determining the success or failure of a campaign, project or task. The evaluation of healthy canteen policy for the prevention of obesity involves two different levels of evaluation, namely primary and secondary. The primary evaluation evaluates the primary outcome related to policy compliance, and the secondary evaluation evaluates the level of policy reach, policy adoption and implementation of maintenance.
This phase involves recommending further improvements for the intervention program based on outcomes as detailed through evaluation.
The timeline includes the estimated duration for each phase and individual tasks of the specific phases. The total duration is year and tasks would be executed through overlapping months.
The table details the key involved people in the intervention program with detailed individual roles in the project. The program manager will lead the project and making plans, overseeing the plans. School authorities will be managing the execution and implementation of the program. Grocers will be providing foods, fruits and vegetables. Protect team will be managing all phases of the project including finances and budgeting
The total budget for the intervention program is estimated at $227,535, including all taxes.
It is concluded that the implementation of the smart canteen prevention strategy at the school level would involve social and community benefit by preventing obesity in children. It is recommended that obesity prevention among children should be undertaken as a community approach for greater reach and scalability.
