In terms of the third component of the approach, social mobilisation, communities and stakeholders such as the media, NGOs, opinion, decision makers, patient networks and religious groups need to become involved in the prevention of TB.

Having the ability, the power, to change someone’s life, by just giving him or her basic health care knowledge is so empowering.

As a result of my study on gangs, I have discovered that the reasons people join gangs are because they have an addiction to drugs, have uncontrollable emotions, face experiences with failure and have unhealthy relationships. I agree with these causes of why people join gangs and also believe those causes can be prevented. By making good decisions, I believe people would not join a gang. Other people might say that becoming involved with gangs cannot be controlled due to family and ethnic cultures endorsing it, but this is unreasonable because of all the preventions to the causes. The addiction to drugs is a cause of joining gangs, because once a person gets hooked they will take any necessary means to receive these drugs.
Treatment seeks to create a continuum of care by recognizing that different drug use patterns must guide treatment strategies. Since there is a chronic relapse pattern with addictions treatment, abstinence is not always the only measure of success.

Police will be guided by an individual’s behaviour in determining whether or not to lay drug or alcohol possession charges.
As a member of society, there will be times where we would need to break the law in an important occasion. The laws were made for our society to be safe and they also serve as a protection of an individual’s rights. Laws prevent people from getting hurt or getting into situations they might regret later in their lives. But there will be scenarios where we would need to break the law for our protection, protection of our family, or in a state of an emergency. Breaking the law would be acceptable if lives are in danger or to prevent an even more serious law being made.
It actively engages members of the community, ensuring that designed interventions are relevant, effective, socially and culturally acceptable; and promote uptake of prevention and risk reduction measures. This leads to empowerment, as the community gains control of the issues, set their priorities and take necessary actions to produce change. Ultimately, the community develops competence with respect to solving its problems, and gains experience. Health promotion is made easier as conditions that favour healthy behaviours are created; thus it can be concluded that communities can either support or inhibit health behaviour change (Edberg
Operant conditioning is introduced by B. F. Skinner through his theory, Skinner’s Theory, which introduced reinforcing stimulus. Despite of positive or negative the stimulus is, behaviour is likely to recur based on a reinforcer. From our findings, his contribution on this field gives a very high impact in audiology and speech sciences area of studies, to be specific. Many treatments for hearing loss and speech-language problems today was based on reinforcement and punishment method. This theory may act as an alternative way in helping the clinician to gain an accurate result during assessment.
The ultimate objective for Sayegh to adopt culture of accountability is mainly to create a steady and continuous learning cooperation. The process of ongoing learning can support health organization including AUBMC in order to promote the acquisition and implement perfect knowledge as a basic foremost strategy in order to manage the changes required for AUBMC and will support the organization in identifying major critical requirements to empower workforces to achieve and participate in continuous healthcare improvement.

Morehouse School of Medicine is an appealing option for pursuing my medical education. When reading Morehouse’s mission statement, improving the health and well-being of individuals and communities grasped my attention. My clinical experiences revolve around communities that are underserved, and sharing the same mission as Morehouse is key to becoming the physician I aspire to be. One of the things that stood out to me about Morehouse is the student run Good Samaritan Health Center. I am very interested about being involved with God Samaritan, because it is akin to the Siloam Family Health Center that I volunteer at, and it is an embodiment of Morehouse’s mission.
