    • 8. Course Objectives of Intro to Public Health

      • Describe public health as a system and identify its functions
      • Identify the basic tools of public health that can be used to assess community health status
      • Recognize determinants and contributing factors of community health problems

    • 9. Definition of Public Health Public Health is:
    • 10. The Five Core Sciences of Public Health
    • 11. Lead Lab
      • Testing for lead plays an important role in Public Health.
      • As part of the course we had a chance to use gamma ray guns that could read every element inside of the material it tested.
    • 12. Extra Curricular All of our UNLV hosts made us feel at home and made sure that we had a chance to appreciate the greater Las Vegas area.
    • 13. Phase 2
    • 14. Understanding Public Health issues in the Community
      • The health of our community depends on the health of our individual members. To put the issues in to context we utilized the following information sources:
    • 15. Choosing a Survey
      • We decided to continue the work of Steve Yanni who in 2000 administered three surveys to determine the health of our local youth ages 12 – 19.
    • 16. Results of the survey
      • We were able to survey 53 percent of the targeted participants.
      • We used SPSS a statistical data program for stratifying out results from the raw data of the survey.
      • The five top areas of concern that the survey indicated were:
        • Drug and Alcohol use/abuse
        • Risky Sexual Behaviors
        • Suicidal Ideations
        • Lack of interest in furthering post-secondary education
        • Under utilization of available community resources
    • 17. Illegal Activities Comparative Data
    • 18. Unhealthy Behaviors
    • 19. Phase 3
    • 20. 2 Goals of Phase 3 As full-time students we understood that there would be barriers to accomplish our chosen action plans. Some of the barriers were; time, finances, and man-power. In the end after weighing out all of the possible areas where we could have an impact we choose two goals:
    • 21. Goal 1
    • 22. Promoting the Boys and Girls Club
      • The Boys and Girls Club is an excellent resource already in the community. The results from our survey showed that it was being underutilized.
      • In August we found out that the Bay Mills tribe’s H.R. department was putting on a Worksite Wellness Health Fair.
      • This was an opportunity to contact large numbers of adults who may not be aware of the benefits of enrolling their child in the Boys and Girls Club.
    • 23. At the Worksite Wellness Health Fair and the BMCC Health Fair
    • 24. Goal 2
    • 25. At the Ojibwe Charter School
    • 26. Summary of Accomplishments

      • Surveyed 53% of the tribal youth of Bay Mills
      • Stratified out the results of the data
      • Developed two attainable action plans
        • Promoting Bay Mills Boys and Girls Club
        • Promoting Higher Education and Environmental Health
