HCA 415 Week 2 Assignment Public Health and the Law

For more course tutorials visit

www.uoptutorial.com

Public Health and the Law. In the United States, prior to the 1930s, public health efforts were primarily undertaken at local and state levels. After the Great Depression, the federal government was called upon to intervene on behalf of its vulnerable populations. Since that time, debates over federal versus state roles in public health efforts have taken center stage in government and politics (Turncock, 2012, 79).

For this assignment, you will examine the role of state and federal government as it relates to motor vehicle safety. Review the case study Motor Vehicle Safetyin your course text. Provide a brief description of laws associated with motor vehicle safety at the federal level and for your own state. Identify what type of law it is (e.g., constitutional, legislative, administrative, or judicial). How do these laws relate to public health services (e.g., health promotion, wellness and prevention, early detection and prompt treatment, disability limitation, and rehabilitation)? From your perspective, should the federal and or state government play a role in motor vehicle safety? Why or why not? Provide a concrete example that supports your opinion.

Your paper should be two to three pages in length, excluding the title and reference pages, and formatted according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Visit the Ashford University Online Library to locate a minimum of two scholarly sources that support your main ideas
