3: Good Health and Well-Being

Healthy 2020 – Community Health

Michelle A. Prendergast and Geetha Kada

Cohort 2019-2020


You are a part of a global effort to increase access to education and empower students through “open pedagogy.”  Open pedagogy is a “free access” educational practice that places you – the student – at the center of your own learning process in a more engaging, collaborative learning environment.  The ultimate purpose of this effort is to achieve greater social justice in our community in which the work can be freely shared with the broader community.  This is a renewable assignment that is designed to enable you to become an agent of change in your community through the framework of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  For this work, you will integrate the disciplines of English and Nursing to achieve SDG #3: Good Health and Well-Being.   

Learning Objectives


·       Summarize and analyze college-level readings and texts

·       Articulate and support a position in response to readings and texts

·       Demonstrate standard citation and documentation procedures


·       Identify the indicators of health and health disparities within a community.

·       Differentiate between acute care nursing and community health nursing.


This active learning practice is designed to improve your academic skills, increase community connections, and improve social justice for our community.


You will choose one Healthy 2020 “Leading Health Indicators” to examine more in depth.   You will conduct research on a topic based on the 12 Topic Areas that indicate the health of people in the United States and present your findings in an Infographic that clearly communicates the status of the health issues outlined in your topic area. You should give an overview of the “one leading health indicator”, the issues related to it and your role as a nursing student to advocate for your patients. You will post your completed work as a video/PPT/poster presentation.
