Your colleague was excited to tell you about having the opportunity to attend a 2012 presentation on Global Health Strategy by Kathleen Sebelius, the 21st Secretary of the US Department of Health and Human Services.
That started you thinking about global health policy and what we can do to change the world, so you decided to explore and learn more.
- Take the Global Health Policy Quiz. In 1 page, please discuss how well you did (or didn’t do). Which answers surprised you? What did you learn? How will you use your new level of awareness?
- After viewing the slides at “A Conversation About How We Change the World” by Melinda Gates (9/17/13), write a 1-page response to the question on the final slide in that presentation. Be sure to support your response with evidence and citations.
- Some of the information you learned from the video of Kathleen Sebelius’ presentation on Global Health Strategy should help you with this part of the assignment.
The slides are available at http://www.impatientoptimists.org/Posts/2013/09/Explaining-the-MDGs.
