Community Teaching Proposal for Primary Prevention/Health Promotion
The objective of this study is to create a community teaching proposal for primary prevention and health promotion. The work of Kulbok, wet al (2012) reports that public health nursing practice is "population focused and requires unique knowledge, competencies, and skills."

Community teaching for primary prevention and health promotion involves educating community members about what is required to address primary prevention and promotion of health. This can be accomplished through community-wide meetings held at a central location in the community. As noted by Kulbok et al. (2012) "In the 21st century, public health nurses practice in diverse settings including, but not limited to, community nursing centers; home health agencies; housing developments; local and state health departments; neighborhood centers; parishes; school health programs; and worksites and occupational health programs. High-risk, vulnerable populations are often the focus of care and may include the frail elderly, homeless individuals, sedentary individuals, smokers, teen mothers, and those at risk for a specific disease." (p.1) This specific community teaching program is such that focuses...
The resources in this particular community are scarce however, there is a community center where educational classes teaching primary prevention and health promotion can be held at no charge. Volunteers plan to talk with families in the community to determine the best date and time for the meetings. After this determination is made the meeting dates and times will be advertised on the local radio and television station and flyers will be posted throughout the community to inform the residents of the meetings.

Health Promotion: The three levels of prevention in health promotion in nursing practice are primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention.

Christodolous et al. (2006) find that "children who reported less than 30 minutes of daily participation in physical activity demonstrated lower prevalence rates for overweight and obesity as well as superior fitness performance. The detrimental effect of the summer break on the progress of physical fitness was less in children who did participate in physical activity than in those who did not." (Christodolous et al., 199) This helps to
Health Promotion and Nursing Practice During the last three decades the concept of health promotion has emerged from within the overall field of nursing, presenting a proactive method through which health care workers can empower their patients to prevent disease and maintain optimal health.

Health promotion depends on ensuring equitable distribution of resources as a matter of social justice. While there are many diseases endemic to specific populations for genetic
