Day 60: Last Day

We started off the morning with a meeting with everyone in CHEN. We talked about some positive changes, including those involving websites. The Florida Department of Health in Escambia officially has a Twitter account and the communications department is also working on the Escambia Health website. We talked about the current hydration challenge and working the 5-2-1-0 Day of Play and Seafood Fun. Healthiest Weight has a few new prioritized changes including birthing/breastfeeding facilities, worksite wellness, childcare centers, and health care focuses. This year, the healthy equity focus would be on cardiovascular disease and diabetes, with partnering communities in health care and faith-based organizations. There is also a new intervention for toxic stress among children that would need to be accomplished. It was stated that the CHA-CHIP goals needed to have slight revisions to fit other categories and have the Quality Improvement project for training on health equity.

I finished my internship paper this afternoon and had several new insights of my internship that tied into the areas of responsibility as a health education intern. I was not aware that so many sub-competencies made up an entire area, but that the health department does teach and implement many ways of promoting health education internal and external of the organization. It was a hard, long, and rewarding experience.
