PriorEvaluation #1:Cardiovascular diseases

Purpose:The main key is to provide a heads up on the question of whether thehealth education and community organization produce favorable changestowards the cardio vascular disease risk (IOM(Institute of Medicine), 2010).

Location:Northern California is the area of discussion as it has been noted tohave numerous cases of cardio vascular disease (IOM(Institute of Medicine), 2010).

Design: They used randomized experiment to conduct the research. This isbecause they were picking participants in a non strategic manner.

Numberof participants:The number involved in the survey varies from 221 women to 190 men(Reginald,&amp Washington, M.D. 1999).

Activities:Invitation of participants to attend survey centers.

Results:A high percentage of young smokers were obtained on the risk factor.

Limitations:Possibility of experiencing a bias situation may arise due to riskfactors that will motivate people to continue with the study(Reginald,&amp Washington, M.D. 1999).

PriorIntervention #2:Cardiovascular diseases

Purpose:To gain knowledge of the outcome of the results obtained.

Location:In this case the locale being discussed is still in the NorthernCalifornia where the disease has been observed to be very active(Reginald,&amp Washington, M.D. 1999).

Design:In this case, predictor variable strategy was used in obtaining thedata (IOM(Institute of Medicine), 2010).

Numberof participants:The number does not change what is put into more consideration is theage of the participants.

Activities:Emphasis on people being active in sports (IOM(Institute of Medicine), 2010).

Results: The same results obtained from the evaluation of the high percentageof risk factors also appear in the prior interventions.

Limitations:The finding has significant differences between both the non dropoutsand the dropouts who in this case it involve smoking (Reginald,&amp Washington, M.D. 1999).
