The federal government developed Healthy People as a set of national health objectives that are revised every 10 years. These objectives are very specific in order to guide and measure our nation’s progress related to public health. Please visit http://www.healthypeople.gov/2020/topicsobjectives2020/. Click on a topic area that relates to role you chose to discuss. Click on the green Objectives tab in that topic area to choose one Healthy People 2020 objective.

  • Discuss one specific numbered Healthy People 2020 objective (not a goal) related to this community health role.
  • How could a community health nurse help meet this objective?

In Doc Sharing is a helpful “Introduction to Healthy People 2020 website” document to aid you in navigating the HP 2020 website.
