Health and Wellness With Purpose Blog Post INSTRUCTIONS

Prepare an article that could be published on the school Health and Wellness With Purpose blog. For this article, you will select a national health observance (i.e., Health Literacy Month, Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, etc.), describe the health issue or topic of focus, and articulate a clear health message.

Exemplary submissions may be eligible for publishing on Health and Wellness With Purpose blog, so students should use audience-appropriate language and write as if for publication. This is an opportunity to gain early recognition and be featured within the public health community.

Prepare an article of 500-750 words in which you accomplish the following:

  • Describe the health observance and history.
  • Provide an overview of the health issue.
  • Describe the populations most at risk or most affected by the issue.
  • Summarize ways to improve the health issue.
  • Provide a clear health message to influence behavior change related to the issue.

Incorporate at least one resource to support your blog post article.
