First, you need to choose a public health concern/issue that you would like to prevent.  What situation in your community is a problem and is a threat to public health? In my example, I use lead poisoning in American children. Notice that my issue is VERY specific. Check out the linkto find a PH issue/concern and then try to find a specific issue from the listed concerns if you are having trouble thinking of an issue for this assignment.  Let’s say you choose COVID-19- that is a huge issue, so you would want to narrow that down to possibly the shortage of PPE (personal, protective, equipment) due to the pandemic of COVID-19. You would then use the 5 step approach to prevent that shortage of PPE due to the pandemic.
