There are 2 options for completing this assignment.
Design your own health promotion project for a specific population.
If you currently work in health promotion in your health or community service you are encouraged to explore a project proposal that is relevant to your service and the populations in your service catchment area and meets the strategic directions of your health service as well as relevant state and national health targets. If you take this option we encourage you to discuss your ideas with relevant people at your work place.
