Evidence Based Recommendations

Community Health ImageCity Health Report: Examine the health situation in a specified location by utilizing publicly available data, conduct academic research, recommend an evidence-based program to address the identified problem, and write a professional report.  Identify policies, programs, or system changes that will improve the public health challenges.


You will pick a health topic related to data you find on your city.

Examples of Health Topics

  • Diabetes
  • Breast Cancer
  • Mental health
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Substance abuse/overdose 
  • Childhood obesity 
  • High blood pressure
  • Smoking

AFTER you pick your health topic, you will research evidence-based recommendations (not more than 500 words): Describe 3 evidence-based strategies that you would recommend in order to address the priority health issues. 

  • This could be based on strategies or programs that have been successful in addressing a similar situation in a neighboring city or state. 

  • If you are unable to find a comparable program within or near RI, look for programs addressing the health challenges implemented anywhere in the US. 

  • Which agency or agencies should be in charge of the strategies you are proposing? Why? 


YOU WILL ALSO write an Annotated Bibliography
