I’m working on a Health & Medical exercise and need support.


Please note that each and every assignment has its own word limit.

Prepare an article that could be published on GCU’s Health and Wellness With Purpose blog. This article may summarize the findings of a public health research study that has been published within the last year, or you may choose to write about a specific health issue and articulate a clear health message.

Exemplary submissions may be eligible for publishing on GCU’s Health and Wellness With Purposeblog, 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.

Complete one of the following options:

Option 1: Summarize Research Findings

  • Describe the study’s findings.
  • Explain why the problem happened.
  • Interpret what the study’s findings mean.
  • Provide a compelling call to action related to addressing or solving the problem.

Option 2: Health Issue Summary with Health Message

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

  • Provide an overview of the health issue.

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.

It is important that you cover all the topics identified in the assignment. Covering the topic does not mean mentioning the topic BUT presenting an explanation from the context of ethics and the readings for this class

I am a stickler for good organization in everything. I do not want to have to dig for your answers. For instance, if an assignment asks you to provide three examples of something, I suggest that you number them 1-3 so I can find them easily. I also expect that when you submit something as a narrative, you pay attention to how you organize your thoughts: use paragraphs with a topic sentence and supporting sentences; and change paragraphs whenever you introduce a new idea. Also, if there are multiple parts to an assignment, use sub-heads within the paper to organize them.

To get maximum points you need to follow the requirements listed for this assignments 1) look at the word/page limits 2) review and follow APA rules 3) create subheadings to identify the key sections you are presenting and 4) Free from typographical and sentence construction errors.
