Educating the Public
Develop a research-based newsletter or newspaper article about your topic to inform the general public
about the problem or issue. The purpose of the article is to convince the reader that this is an important
issue in your community. What needs to be done to reduce barriers to well-being in your chosen
population? What can be done to build strengths in individuals, families, public entities, etc. to enhance
positive outcomes in relation to your problem or issue? The article should be 1.5–2 pages double-spaced,
in Word, but copied and pasted directly into the discussion window (no attachments).
Cite and reference the sources you have used in developing this article.
