Writing your Health Research Paper

  • INTRODUCTION:Begin your paper introducing your article by providing a brief description/definition of your health topic and how it relates to one of the dimensions of health and wellness. Assume your reader has no knowledge of the health topic/article you have chosen. Start with a basic introduction and an interesting fact or statistic to interest your audience.
  • BODY:Briefly summarize the major points from the article. Explain why your health article provides useful information. Describe the population that might benefit from knowing this information. If your article is about a specific disease or injury state any risk factors and prevention tips.
  • CONCLUSION:What did the authors conclude at the end of the article? Is further research needed for this topic? How can you personally use this information to improve your own health?
