Public health: EXPLAINED!

So the public talks with the decision-makers, the decision-makers talk to both the public and the partners, in addition to extending a thin yellow arrow towards the metaphysical realm of "health impact goals and action plans" while the science-based policy proposals are disseminated to all three: the public, the partners, and the decision-makers. The "health impact goals and action plans" are influenced by SCIENCE, but also by the public and the partners who are already interacting with the decision-makers, and also by the thin yellow arrow extended directly from the decision-makers themselves.

Please make note of the helpful definition of Health Policy, and try not to think too hard about how SCIENCE is actually the main ingredient in this easy recipe.

I imagine you sneaking into some dark office at night, opening up the laptop that contains this powerpoint presentation, and then drawing a big fat yellow arrow from "SCIENCE" to "HEALTH POLICY"

lena, I don't understand what you're so upset about. why would science have anything to do with health policy? I'm surprised it's even on the slide. I mean, do they actually do science at the cdc?

p.s. my word verification is: u i saw. freakin' awesome.
