For the Session Long Project (SLP), you will identify a controversial Public Health Topic that is of interest to you, and explore various dimensions of that issue in each modular component of the SLP. Before you begin this assignment, read through the SLP assignments in every module so you understand the project as a whole.
Your task for this first segment of the SLP is to explain the specific nature of the controversy.
You can submit your paper in a question-and-answer format. In other words, list the questions and provide a short answer to each.
- Identify the controversial public health topic that is you plan to explore. Briefly state whether the controversy is related to economics, morality, religion, ethics, political interference with science, or perhaps another topic. Please explain in 2â€“3 paragraphs and be sure to cite sources rather than simply stating your opinion.
- Briefly discuss the historical context of the controversy. What spurred the controversy? Please write 2â€“3 paragraphs about this, and be sure to cite sources rather than simply stating your opinion.
- Identify stakeholders in the public health controversy. In other words, who were the people or organizations involved and what is their role?
- Write a summary paragraph to close your paper.
