Leadership and Strategy Plan , Heart Disease and Stroke

Final Project: Leadership and Strategy Plan
For this Final Project, you select a pressing health problem affecting a community and
develop a leadership and strategy plan for addressing the problem. You link this
problem to a corresponding Healthy People 2020 objective(s).
You are a new Health Program Planner recently hired by the Lake Troubled Shallows
Department in Minnesota. Prior to your arrival, a comprehensive community health
needs assessment was conducted by the Health Department. Based on the
assessment, the following top five community health needs were identified.
• Heart disease and stroke prevention
The executive director of the Lake Troubled Shallows Health Department has tasked
you with targeting one of the aforementioned community health needs as a top priority
during your first year. The director has asked you to develop a leadership and strategy
plan to address your identified community health need.
As part of the pre-planning stage of developing your leadership and strategy plan, first
select and match one the Healthy People 2020 objectives to one of the top five needs
identified by the Health Department.
For instance, if you choose “physical activity,” review the various physical activity
objectives under the general Healthy People 2020 Objectives. Then, select a specific,
measurable sub-objective.
You will need to review the current national data on your chosen objective.
Next, for purposes of this assignment, you should assume that the health status of
individuals residing in Lake Troubled Shallows is representative of the overall health
status of individuals living within Minnesota. You can go to the Minnesota State Health
Department’s website to find additional data on state level progress and resources to
support your leadership and strategy plan at:
Lake Troubled Shallows Health Department’s Vision, Mission, and Guiding Principles:
Healthy People Living in Healthy Communities
To promote and protect health while preventing disease
Guiding Principles:
• Evidence-based practices
• Collaboration and communication with community members and partners
• Education and outreach
• Empowering people to make healthy choices
You have been given an initial program startup budget of $250,000 (including your
salary and benefits) to aid you with initial program planning and implementation. (Note:
you will develop an annual operating budget in the Assignment.).
The Executive Director of the Lake Troubled Shallows Health Department has asked
that you submit a “Leadership and Strategy” plan to her within the next 2–3 months. The
next section contains the required components of the plan that you must submit to her.
