A couple of weeks ago you wrote a letter to the editor of the local newspaper, describing how communities influence the health of their residents. The editor has received a great number of compliments about the information you shared. People in town have heard about the idea of forming a coalition and want to know more. Therefore, you have been asked to write a weekly article.
For this week’s column, you want to raise awareness of chronic diseases because you’ve heard many people say they will probably develop a chronic disease as a natural part of getting older. This should be an educational article, not an opinion piece.
In your 2 – 3 page essay, please address the following:
- Provide a one paragraph overview of the various types of chronic diseases.
- Identify one chronichealth conditiontheSummervillageCommunity Coalitionshouldbe especially concerned about.
- Explain the power of prevention as opposed to treating the disease after it develops. Give some examples.
- What steps has your State taken to prevent or reduce the burden of this chronic disease?
