It also focuses on high-risk populations and age groups. The report is divided into 2 parts: Part 1, entitled "Healthy People 2000," contains 6 sections (an introduction, age groups, special populations, goals for the nation, priorities for health promotion and disease prevention, and shared resposibilities) and 3 appendixes (lists of objectives, contributors, and lead agencies); Part 2, "National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives," contains 6 sections (health promotion, health protection, preventive services, surveillance and data systems, age-related objectives, and special population objectives) and appendixes on mortality objectives and recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Services task force. Educators can choose from the objectives to address their highest health priorities for children. Some examples of education related goals are: children's health; child development; and developmental problems. (LL)
