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.
