Module 6 Answer three of the questions below respond to at least one classmate with a well thought our response and discussion. Be sure to review the powerpoint, videos and any additional material that may be appropriate to support your response. 1. What defines public health as a concept, as well as a healthcare system operating in this country? 2. 3. Is public health the responsibility of healthcare administrators, hospital or the community? Was the Baltimore public health issue any different than any other inner city, how? a. The responsibility of public health is in everyone’s hands because while some parts of the system have a larger role, it is not necessarily more important. Because public health is a system, that means that the responsibility isn’t just on one group. It also means that if any group drops that responsibility, then it won’t be able to function at its optimal best. I think the Baltimore issue is a good example of this. As stated by Leana Wen, as an administrator, she had assumed what the leading health issue was for children in schools. If public health was only the responsibility of administrators, then Ms. Wen could have acted on her assumptions based on studies and data. But it wasn’t just her responsibility because it was also on the actual people to speak up and let the administration know their thoughts. And in the case she spoke about, her assumption was wrong. 4. Do poverty, violence, and discrimination play a role in public health? a. As to the part if this issue was specific to Baltimore, I think it depends from what

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
