Healthy Lifestyles and Health Policy – 2 pages and 2 references

Scientific studies have linked tobacco use, body weight, diet, and exercise to health outcomes. Evidence supports the promotion of healthy lifestyles, with the underlying assumption that a healthier lifestyle will lead to reduced cost and improved outcomes. However, many individuals find it difficult to quit smoking, lose weight, or exercise more.
Michelle Obama is actively promoting healthier choices, especially for children. As discussed in this unit’s introduction, President Obama issued an executive order to promote disease prevention.
For this discussion, address the following:
· What role do you think policy makers should play in promoting healthy lifestyles?
· Is the increased focus on a healthy lifestyle an intrusion on individual rights? Since society potentially pays the price of unhealthy lifestyles through uncompensated care, increased health insurance premiums, and decreased productivity in the workplace, do policy makers have the right to encourage consumers to change their lifestyle habits?

Part E

Access, Quality, and Cost – 3 pages and 2 references.

Imagine you are president of the United States and you are faced with addressing the current health care crisis. As your advisors brief you on the status of health care affairs in the United States, they inform you that your health care policies must increase access, increase quality, and reduce cost. You must begin preparing for your State of the Union address and you want to inform the people how you plan to fulfill your campaign promise of improving the health care system.
For this discussion, write your top three opportunities to reform health care as part of your State of the Union address. In your post, consider the following questions:
· How will your new health care policy address each of the issues of access, quality, and cost?
· Are there additional components that you feel need to be addressed?
· Is there any one area that is more important and must be addressed first?
· Who will benefit most from your new policy?
· Are there groups of individuals who will be disadvantaged by your new policy? If yes, which are these groups?
