HOW A HEALTH DEPARTMENT
INVESTIGATES A HEALTH ISSUE
HOW A HEALTH DEPARTMENT
INVESTIGATES A HEALTH ISSUE
EXAMPLE
EXAMPLE
VAPING IS A PUBLIC
HEALTH ISSUE THAT
AFFECTS TEENS
or
....have vaped in the past month
WELCOME TO
DILBEYVILLE!
You have just been hired by the Dilbeyville Health
Department and it’s your first day!
• The health department wants to develop a rapid analysis of why there has
been a sudden increase in injuries associated with vaping.
• You have been tasked with quickly collecting data to understand why teens are
vaping.
• In addition to health department’s databases about cases of injuries, where
would you go look for information about teen attitudes, perceptions and
behaviors related to vaping and e-cigarettes? Who in the community would you
talk to?
TASK #1: INVESTIGATION
• There is a social media campaign online promoting a vaping device and linking
it to an athletic, cool lifestyle. It is generating a lot of memes and many young
people locally are referencing it on TikTok and Instagram with videos of
themselves vaping or posing with the device.
• Your boss is alarmed and concerned parents are calling the health department.
• How would you understand how this has spread, why it is so popular, and how
it might be affecting young people.
• What are two good ideas about what the health department can do to address
this harmful campaign? What are two bad ideas to address it?
TASK #2: COUNTERING HARMFUL ONLINE CAMPAIGN
• The health department received a call from the local newspaper asking for
comment about a new piece of misinformation that seems to be circulating
among young people in the city.
• Some young people are posting testimonials echoing this misinformation that
chain vaping is a legal and natural performance enhancer because it can help
with athletic performance and increase focus for acing tests at school.
• You’ve been tasked with debunking this claim for the reporter.
• Your boss also wants to know how to get accurate information about this topic
in front of teen athletes and teachers in a way that is effective and not boring.
• How would you debunk this misinformation in an engaging way?
TASK #3: DEBUNKING MISINFORMATION
• The health department has a partnership with the YMCA. They’ve chosen a
local community center as a pilot organization to address the issue of teen
vaping in the community.
• You’re preparing for a discussion with the center’s director about what
activities you might want to implement together.
• What strategies do you think they should try and who else should they partner
with?
TASK #4: MAKING RECOMMENDATIONS
CONGRATULATIONS! THE
MAYOR OF DILBEYVILLE
HAS GIVEN YOU A MEDAL
OF APPRECIATION!
The lungs of the young people of Dilbeyville thank you.
