The decrease in cigarette smoking
The decrease in the incidence of diabetes
The decrease in motor vehicle accidents
The decrease in osteoporosis and hip fractures among women
Decrease in obesity
Address the following questions:
Identify the risk factors associated with the selected health promotion programs.
What is the target population associated with the selected health promotion program? Consider the hypothetical target population, consisting of middle-aged women, male adolescent gang members, premature infants, etc., and describe the characteristics of each program.
What are the risk factors that you want to focus on in order to achieve the objective of the health promotion program?
What intervention would you recommend to be most appropriate to reduce exposure to these risk factors? You can choose at what level of intervention you want to implement each program (primary, secondary, tertiary health intervention).
What will be the process by which this intervention will achieve the goal of the program?
What will be the anticipated outcome of this intervention?
To support your work, use your course and textbook readings and also use the South University Online Library. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.

If you are not familiar with the terminology, take time to read the course materials and other relevant resources. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me. You will not be able to fulfill the requirements if you do not understand the terminology (i.e. risk factor, target population, intervention, levels of prevention, etc.)
Allocate appropriate time to complete this assignment.
Cite sources in the body of the paper “and” on the reference list in APA
format (remember that you cannot include sources on the reference list
that have not been cited in the body of the paper).
