1. Given the history of public health, how has the field of public health administration evolved? In other words, how does the role of the public health administrator of today differ from the role of the public health administrator in the past (25, 50, 75, years ago)? Write a paragraph that compares the role of a public health administrator today with an example from the past (what is a public health administrator???!!) What ethical precepts are applicable? Remember to cite your sources.
2. How does public health work with health care systems or other governmental agencies when it comes to maintaining public wellness? Identify both effective collaboration and gaps. What happens when a community is at risk from a few people or even one person? What ethical parameters apply? Remember to cite your sources.
3. Public health authorities hold unique powers among non-law enforcement government agencies: the ability to detain persons. This is a powerful authority in a nation and culture that emphasizes individual freedoms. Under what circumstances can a person be held under order of health authorities? Is this a necessary process or an abuse of governmental police powers?
