Instructions

An important component of this course is the research paper. Select a topic pertinent to Public Health in America. Write an 8-12 page paper that will include at least 4-6 evidence/research-based references (no Wikipedia!), an abstract, a graph or chart (data) if applicable to your topic (should not take up more than ¼ of a page).

Your research paper may include (if applicable to your topic) the following information:

  • Historical Perspective/Background information on your topic
  • Population affected
  • Environmental issues
  • Epidemiological Research
    • Data Use
    • Morbidity & Mortality Patterns
  • Public Health issues & interventions
  • Medical Response
    • Prehospital (if applicable)
    • Hospital
    • Other
  • Government response
    • Local vs. State vs. Federal
  • Economic Factors/Issues
  • Media Coverage/Communication Issues
  • Logistical Issues
    • What worked – what didn’t – why
  • Aftermath
  • Lessons Learned

The research paper should include an introduction of the topic, a body in which the topic is developed and references cited, and a well-defined conclusion. I strongly recommend that you contact me with the topic of your paper before you begin your research. The topic you choose may be too broad or too narrow, and a discussion may help you to focus so that your learning will be maximized and your paper will be the best it can be.
