A mission statement is a statement that describes the purpose of a program. A mission statement’s key component includes:
Local Public Health Program
A local organization that has a public health program is the Galveston County Health District (GCHD)’s HEAL (Healthy Eating | Active Living) public health program. Their mission is to become the healthiest county in Texas by promoting easy to learn and fun healthy activities to improve its population quality of life (Galveston County Health District, 2020).
The key components for the GCHD are successfully represented. The organization had a goal that was specific and stated its intention and the direction they wanted to go and their end result. The objectives are clear through the different sectors within the program they promoted, such as marathons, fun get active events, ways to eat healthy, how to cook healthily, how to stay active, and how to manage diabetes (GCHD, 2020).
The statement started with factual data from the CDC stating that approximately 40% of Americans are obese and that the HEAL program will come up with creative ways to help their community achieve the goal of becoming the healthiest county in Texas. This mission statement influences public health because they are striving to make a difference for the public health of their community because obesity is a serious health condition that can lead to cardiovascular diseases (diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke) and other comorbidities (GCHD, 2020).
