A systems thinking approach is necessary when leading a public health initiative
A systems thinking approach is necessary when leading a public health initiative in a culturally and economically diverse community. On the other side, it is important to not ignore the individual aspects of health. Given the influence of political or economic systems, reflect on how focusing on broad social, political, and economic factors might blind us to the interpersonal aspects of health and the small individual impacts that can change a person's world. In a 500-word reflection, comment on how a systems-based approach helps bridge gaps in providing necessary public health services but needs to be balanced with a personal holistic approach to transform communities. View the "Start Small, Change the World: Lori DiPrete Brown at TEDxUWMadison" video on YouTube to provide additional perspective.
