Identify a current public health care issue raised in our text that affects you or someone you know. Public health care issues can be, for example, related to: clean air and water, vaccinations, communicable diseases, traffic safety, healthy food, gun use, birth control, birth defects, smoking, school lunches, and recreation opportunities, such as sufficient parks and bike paths. Define the public health issue you choose and the public policy about this concern. Describe how this issue is addressed, whether federally, by states, locally, or by private groups, or by some combination of these. If this particular issue is relevant to only certain locations or handled differently in different areas, explain this variance. How are various entities responsible for and address (or don’t) the problem and the difficulties involved? Conclude with your analysis on the importance of the issue, and, propose how the issue might be better addressed.
