In order to discuss health policy evaluation, we must first understand the intended goals and outcomes of the public health policy. Participants will work in small groups to design public health policy evaluation logic models based on actual public health policies. In the interest of time, several components of the logic model will be provided to participants.

Learning Areas:
Implementation of health education strategies, interventions and programs
Public health or related laws, regulations, standards, or guidelines
Public health or related public policy

Learning Objectives:
1) Explain the connection between public health policy and health outcomes; 2) Design a logic model to illustrate these connections; 3) Identify at least 5 variables that measure public health conditions; 4) Demonstrate ability to determine the feasibility and expected outcomes of policy options; and 5) Explain the implications of policy options
