According to our textbook, while evaluating the family genetic history, attention to tobacco use, heavy alcohol use, coronary heart disease, hypertension, stroke, diabetes, obesity, blood disorders, breast/ovarian cancer, colon cancer, sickle-cell anemia, arthritis, allergies, drug addiction, mental illness, suicide, seizure disorder, kidney disease and tuberculosis is essential (Jarvis, 2016, p. 53). Of the diseases listed, the ones included in his family history include; coronary artery disease and hypertension. These diseases certainly are areas of concern as JK has the risk of developing them.

"Healthy People 2020 (HP2020) provides a comprehensive set of 10-year, national goals and objectives for improving the health of all Americans" ("Healthy People 2020", 2015, p. 2). It monitors and evaluates whether the goals of improving health indicators are met or getting worse. Community health problems should be analyzed in order to comprehend and effectively resolve the problem ("Analyzing Community Problems", 2015). Levels of prevention are phases wherein healthcare professionals can intervene in the health of individuals and communities. Primary prevention involves seeking ways to prevent a person from having a disease they can be prone to.
