UDC Agriculture Policy Evaluation Analysis

Description

Using your assigned determinant of health, review a policy that was improperly evaluated and discuss the implications of improper evaluation on health. The Robinson article provides a great example of how evaluation of our agricultural policies has contributed to obesity rates.

In response to your peers, ask a gotcha question (see Module 1 for definition) that is intended to suggest how the Government Accountability Office (GAO) or Congressional Budget Office (CBO) could help evaluate the policy. This question should suggest how this additional step could impact health.
