  1. Do you believe the United States is on course to achieve this Healthy People 2020 objective or improving the health of the U.S. as a whole? Why or why not?
  2. Describe 2-3 current health promotion programs, campaigns or activities underway to aIDress this Leading Indicator.
  3. Are any of these programs, campaigns, or activities working? What evidence is there to support your conclusion?

Use some of the web resources located in the “Websites” area to provide at least one example of a health-promotion related job for your peers. Include the job title, salary, assigned duties, and necessary credentials. Does this job description you’ve selected appeal to you? Why/why not?

Option 3: Is it really possible for an individual to become “culturally competent”? Using support from your readings, present your rationale. Then, justify why effective cross-cultural communication is important for effective health promotion practice. Offer at least 2-3 examples and support your rationale with evidence.
