Assignment of three parts
The steps to completing the assignment are as follows:
For this activity, I want you to explore the Data Visualization tool that you learned about in the TED Talk about the GBD 2017 project. Go to the GBD Compare webpage and read about the tool: http://www.healthdata.org/data-visualization/gbd-compare (Links to an external site.).
Next, go to “Interact with the data visualization” page. When on that page, I want you to explore how the tool works. Select one low-income, one-middle income, and one high-income country (you can find a list of countries in each classification here: https://datahelpdesk.worldbank.org/knowledgebase/articles/906519-world-bank-country-and-lending-groups).
Between each of the three countries selected, examine and reflect on the differences in DALYs. Additionally, comment on the differences of the DALYS for the different countries by age groups and for males and females separately (as well as combined).

For this part, reflect on your encounters with public health throughout the course of a day

7 a.m. Your alarm clock rings and you roll out of bed. You turn the faucet to brush your teeth and fluoride-enriched water flows out. Despite being reluctant to commute to work this morning, you have slept well.
7:30 a.m. Before you leave the house, you have a balanced, nutritious breakfast. The food you prepare has been inspected and approved as ready for human consumption.
8 a.m. You hop in the car for your daily commute to work and buckle your seatbelt. As you are driving, you can be assured that public health experts have conducted research that has led to improved traffic safety laws.
9 a.m. Your workday has begun. The air filters provide the office with clean air. Public health experts researching the effects of proper posture on chronic musculoskeletal injuries developed your office chair with ergonomics in mind. The overhead lights have been designed to provide just the right amount of light to keep you awake and also reduce depressive symptoms.
12 noon At lunch, you go for a brisk walk. The CDC encourages adults to get at least 30 minutes of activity at day. Regular exercise can help you:
Control weight and high blood pressure
Reduce risk for type 2 diabetes, heart attack, and colon cancer
Reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety
Reduce arthritis pain and disability, and the risk for osteoporosis and falls
8 p.m. Before reading a bestselling novel and falling asleep, you decide to watch some television. The evening newscaster mentions the latest study into the effects of smoking on lung cancer and another about the latest study on heart disease. The FDA announced approval of a new medication to treat asthma and public health experts are handling possible disease transmission after a recent hurricane. A commercial explains the latest food guide and you start planning what breakfast you will eat tomorrow morning.

Expectancy violations theory claims that we have certain expectations for behavior. When those expectations are violated, we can either respond favorably or negatively based on the perception we have of the one violating the norm.
Your task for this assignment is to reflect on a time when your own expectancies were violated or use the video clip examples in this week’s module. Write a three-paragraph reflection using the following prompts:
What violation was committed? What was the reaction to the violation? What was the expectancy in this situation? How do you know?
What was the violation valence? How do you know?
How would you react if you were in this situation?
Your response should include definitions of any theory concepts with APA style citations for the information.
