The goal of the topic is to inform, educate, and try to prevent from happening. The objectives of this topic accordingly to “HealthyPeople”, are to increase the proportion of adolescents who are connected to positive caregivers, increase educational achievement, increase the proportion of students whose reading levels are at or above proficiency achievement levels, and mathematical skills, and most of all to reduce adolescent and young adult victimization by crimes.

6. Which part of the website did you find to be the most interesting? The part of HealthyPeople 2020 that I found most intriguing was on the home page area, where you were opted to enter your race/ethnicity and age range. It then actually compares the top ten causes of death across the populations. It informed me about a lot that I didn’t know about my fellow African American people, and it also horrified me every time I entered “black” in that drop down box for ethnicity. Out of every race listed, every time I entered my race the worst studies came up no matter what disease it was. It was sad but true. I have faith that one day those homicide, suicide, and HIV numbers will go down tremendously. Their MAPIT plan sounds wonderful.
