Using a Health Policy Model to Develop a Change in Policy to Improve the Public’s Health

In a Microsoft Word document of 2-3 pages formatted in APA style, you will focus on the methods to develop a change in policy to improve the public’s health by using a health policy model.

Suppose you want to initiate a policy of taxing sugared sodas/pop/beverages in your community. In your paper, address each of the following criteria:

  • Use the Longest’s policy cycle model to structure your proposed policy.
  • What arguments would you use to make the case for the policy?
  • What argument(s) would your opponents make?
  • How would you go about getting buy-in for your proposed policy?
    • What stakeholder groups need to be involved in promoting your policy?

On a separate reference page, cite all sources using APA format. Please note that the title and reference pages should not be included in the total page count of your paper.
