MAP-IT: A Guide To Using Healthy People 2020 in Your Community A Framework for Implementation No two public health interventions are exactly alike. But most interventions share a similar path  to success:  M obilize,  A ssess,  P lan,  I mplement,  T rack.  Otherwise known as MAP-IT, this framework can be used to plan and evaluate public health  interventions to achieve Healthy People 2020 objectives. Whether you are a seasoned public  health professional or new to the field, the MAP-IT framework will help you create your own path  to a healthy community and a healthier Nation. MAP-IT Principles MAP-IT in Action – In the Workplace:  Employees Organize To Improve  Workplace Wellness Mobilize Questions To Ask and Answer: What is the vision and mission of the  coalition? Why do I want to bring people  together? Who should be represented? Who are the potential partners  (organizations and businesses) in my  community? Start by mobilizing key individuals and  organizations into a coalition.  Look for partners who have a stake in creating  healthy communities and who will contribute to  the process. Aim for broad representation.  Next, identify roles for partners and assign  responsibilities. This will help to keep partners engaged in the  coalition. For example, partners can: Facilitate community input through  meetings, events, or advisory groups. Develop and present education and  training programs Mobilize Linda recently had a mild heart attack and was  out of work for 3 months. She returns to work  and discusses her experience with a few  coworkers. They are all surprised to learn that  heart disease is the leading cause of death in  both men and women. Linda shares  information with them about the simple  changes she’s making to help prevent another  heart attack, such as going for walks during  lunch and using less salt when she cooks. Linda and her coworkers believe that other  company employees need to know about their  risk of heart disease and how to prevent it.  They contact the company’s human resources  (HR) department for a meeting to talk about  ways to share health information with other  employees. At the meeting, they all decide to  form a workplace wellness committee, which  will look into programs for improving  employees’ well-being.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
