HC 491 Week 7 Discussion Assignment Help

Unit 7: Discussion – CDC Chronic Disease Indicator Tool


As a population health coordinator for a community hospital, you are asked to put a treatment versus prevention discussion together for a group of advanced practice providers who work in family practices.   You are asked to talk about the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) chronic disease indicator tool so that the providers understand the tool and the data stored on the site. 

This site enables public health professionals to retrieve uniformly defined state and selected metropolitan-level data for chronic diseases and risk factors that have a substantial impact on public health. These indicators are essential for surveillance, prioritization, and evaluation of public health interventions.

  • The document should not be prepared consistent with the APA writing style (6th edition) except that the in-text citations (if applicable) and references should be properly formatted.
