health that you want to learn more about, and give you practice in finding sources,
reading and summarizing health information, and analyzing these different types of

specific library and web sources

1. Choose Your Topic
Your topic can be anything related to health and wellness. To start, think about a
question you have related to health. Maybe it’s something like “What causes acne?” or
“How harmful are e-cigarettes?” or “Are creatine supplements safe?” Or perhaps you
don’t have a specific question, but you want to learn more about one of the topics in
our health course. For example, your topic could be: “risk factors for type II diabetes”,
or “stress in college students”. I recommend you pick a topic that YOU have a
personal interest in, because this will make your writing assignment more enjoyable
for you.
