This discussion is meant to be an opportunity for you to explore health-related research. Using the skills you learned from the lecture given by Alfred Mowdood (he came to class on 9/12) you need to find a research article from a peer-reviewed journal on one of the following topics:
- Health concerns of older adults (50+ years old)
- How stress impacts health
- Medical marijuana used to treat pain
- Opiod abuse in the United States
- Health risks associated with e-cigarettes/vaping
Here’s what you need to do:
- Post the article you found. It must be the full-text article in a format that you can attach (e.g., PDF, .doc, .docx etc). Do not post a link to the the article! Failure to actually post an article will result in an “incomplete”
- Explain how you found the article. What database did you use? What search terms did you use?
- Out of all the articles you found in your search, why did you choose this particular one to use for this assignment?
- What was the research question the author(s) were trying to answer with their study?
I encourage you to respond to the posts of your group members, but that is not required.
