I need assistance with Community Assessment Powerpoint Presentation 

Community Assessment

powerpoint presentation (100 points)

The purpose of this assignment is for you to conduct a community assessment and create a powerpoint presentation of your findings.

  • Analyze your county’s data for populations at risk
  • Compare your county’s risks to HP 2030 goals
  • Assess youth risk using the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS)
  • Recommend a MN PH intervention to promote health outcomes in this population.

Imagine you are your county’s new Public Health Nursing director, and you are conducting a community assessment. The ppt you will create is for a presentation to your community’s political leaders, concerned citizens, school parents.

The below video covers Slides 0 – 6. (Hover over top right corner of slide to ‘pop-out’ full screen.) 

NOTE: Healthy People 2030 has replaced HP2020. Please stop video on 9:15 min. when HP 2020 is mentioned. Instead, follow HP 2030 instructions for Slide 6.

Slide 0: Title

Title your slide presentation (your name, county, state)

Slide 1: Introduction (and demographics)

Read the purpose of a Community assessment: North Carolina Community Assessment Guide for an example of a step-by-step tool for county officials to use.   (Links to an external site.)

  • Look especially at Phase 3 (Collect Secondary Data), 4 (Analyze and Interpret County Health Data), and 5 (Determine Health Priorities). These are the steps you’ll be completing in your community assessment.
  • Go to the US Census Bureau Website (Links to an external site.) and enter your county and state: Select your state, then county. Review and compare carefully your county’s demographic data to the state and US.
  • Go to your city/county’s tourist or Chamber of Commerce website. Read the introduction and history to your community

Using the above information,

Introduce your county. Include state, geographic location, overall description of whether rural, urban, and, one or two interesting facts. Also include:

  • County’s population,
  • distribution of races (highest three),
  • median household income,
  • % living in poverty,
  • % High school and % Bachelor education,
  • % of total population > 16 y/o employed,
  • a map (image) showing where in the state your county is situated.

Slide 2 : Two (2) positive health indicators

Link to the following website to learn about county health rankings. (Links to an external site.) Enter your community’s county and state : Click on your state, > Compare Counties” > Review your county’s health outcomes.

  1. Compare your county’s health outcomes and health indicators to your (a) state and the (b) US top performers in the table (you’ll see US and state comparisons with your county).

Select Two (2) positive health indicators (i.e. county has less smoking, or, fewer premature deaths than state and national average. ) If your county has not positive health indicates, state this.

  • Provide descriptions of each (positive) health indicator (found on county healthranksing.org website > click on blue health indicator link).
  • Provide 2-3 sentence comparing the positive indicators, as they relate to the state and US.
  • If none of the indicators are ‘positive, choose the best of the worst.

Slides 3 & 4: Concerning Health Outcomes

Select four (4) of your community’s most concerning (troubling) health indicators that are worse than the state and US. Choose from among the health, social or economic indicators. (i.e., see ppt table to use).

  • Provide a description of each of the four (4) indicators (link on ‘blue’ health indicators in County Health Rankings table that will take you to definitions and descriptions for each.)
  • Provide thorough comparison (2-3 sentence) of each (negative) health indicator as compared to the State and US top performer.

Slide 5: Most Urgent Indicator

Analysis of Most Urgent Indicator: From these four (4) concerning health indicators you selected for your community,

  • Choose the one most urgent indicator that pertains to teens (population of interest). Explain why, of the 4 problem health indicators you report, you believe this one is the most urgent.

Slide 6: Healthy People 2030

  • Link here for an introduction video on HP 2020 (by Dr. Hobby). (Links to an external site.)
  • Which Healthy People 2030 goal /objective (one) does this problem health indicator address? Link here for HP 2030 goals and objectives (Links to an external site.) (i.e. once you’re on the HP 2030 home page, > Objectives & Data > Browse Objectives > i.e., for Overweight and Obesity > ‘Reduce the proportion of…’..-NWS-04. 
  • Briefly define and summarize the goal. i(.e., paraphrase this from the NWS-04 summary:Many children and adolescents in the United States have obesity. Obesity is linked to a higher risk for diseases and conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, asthma, anxiety, and depression. In addition, children with obesity are more likely to be bullied and to have obesity as adults…
  • Identify the best objective for your priority (i.e. in above example, one objective might be: “Reduce the proportion of children & adolescents with obesity – NWS-04″ ).
  • Identify the baseline (i.e., 17.8 percent of children and adolescents aged 2 to 19 years had obesity in 2013-16).
  • Identify the 2030 target (i.e., 15.5 percent).

Slide 7: High School Population YRBS findings

Link to CDC’s Youth Online High School Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS). Using one (1) of your most urgent indicator, review data from your state’s Youth Risk Behavior Survey.  (Links to an external site.)(county-level data is not available). The slide 7 will focus on specific high school population aggregate (i.e. group who share a common problem or characteristic) in your state (no county data available).

  • (Note: if you want to speed up the video, hover over the bottom right corner and choose the speed. The default is “1.0,” reset it to “1.25” and the speaker seems caffeinated…..). This video is made with the Canvas recording app instead of the UWF recording studio…

To do for Slide 7:

  • Insert screenshot of YRBS table.
  • Discuss the relationship between your urgent indicator, HP 2030 objective, and the state’s YRBS survey findings.
  • Support your YRBS findings with the urgent indicator.

Slide 8: PH Intervention for YRBS findings:

Think of a PH Intervention you recommend as the next step to promote (for example) physical activity opportunities for the students.

1. Name the (a) specific MN PH intervention you recommend. (b) What level the intervention is (Systems, community, individual/family)? (c) Define the intervention.

Public Health intervention definitions (PDF) (Links to an external site.)

(i.e. Say your state’s high schoolers had a low physical activity rate. A PHN might choose: Community Organizing as the MN PH intervention at the Community level: i.e. The slide recommendation is:

  • The PHN will organize a planning meeting with interested stakeholders to discuss active, fun activities for students (the recommended intervention).
    • “the process by which people come together to identify common problems or goals, mobilize resources, and develop and implement strategies for reaching the objectives they want to accomplish” (Center for Community Health and Development at the University of Kansas, 2017).The PH intervention level is community-level, and the PH intervention is community organizing. Community organizing is defined as:

Slide 9: SMART Plan:

Good public health practice requires strong objectives in order to monitor progress toward achieving goals and outcomes. Define a simple SMART intervention plan. Review the following pdf file that briefly explains how to write this. For examples, scroll down the page to a table: Download this pdf: How to write SMART objectives


Define your intervention as: specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-limited. State your plan as a SMART plan: (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Time-scaled) in 2-3 sentences. i.e.,

  • (Specific): A committee will be formed to include to include the school’s principal, PE teacher, student body president, parent organization president, resource officer, transportation official, Chamber of Commerce representative, and Public Health RN. The Committee will meet monthly to create a 5K fun run during the spring.
  • (Measurable): Two race starts: one for walkers, and, one for runners. Participants will be counted.
  • (Achievable): All race expenses will be paid by volunteer donations from local business sponsors.
  • (Realistic): Coaches, PHN, and volunteers will define and monitor a 5K route around the school neighborhood.
  • (Time-scaled): it will be on a Saturday morning in Spring 2021.

Slide 10: Community Assessment Conclusion

Conclude with a short opinion of your community observations. What were you most surprised to discover about your community? How confident are you in defining a population-of-interest and it’s urgent health indicators?
