Directions for Health Issues “Fact Sheet” – a (short) Research Paper

There are many topics of concern in health and health education today. Information expands and at incredible rate and it’s impossible to include all important issues in this one-unit course. For this assignment, follow the steps outlined below:

Step 1: Choose a topic – any current issue that relates to health. Here is a partial list of ideas

  • Sleep deprivation
  • Eating disorders (Obesity, or Anorexia, or Bulimia nervosa)
  • Drug use (Alcoholism in children ages 12-18 OR Tobacco use (smoking or chewing) in children ages 12 – 18)
  • Depression or social anxiety
  • Mental health disorders (schizophrenia, bipolar, OCD…)
  • Cancer, Zika, West Nile virus, hepatitis, STDs…

Step 2: Investigate your selected topic. Find at least 3 resources. While you may read a Wiki and use links attached to it, do NOT stop there and reference a Wiki in your final paper!

Step 3: Write a one-page “Fact Sheet” about your topic. This should be something that you could share at a school staff meeting OR with a concerned parent during a teacher/parent conference. You will have a second page, a “Work Cited” page, with the 3+ resources you used to write your “Fact Sheet” - listed in MLA format. If you don’t know how to use MLA, find an online resource for creating this such as “” All papers are to be typed in Times New Roman, size 12 font (just like this direction page) and single-spaced. Your report outline should look like this:

  • Introduction (identify your topic, define it, tell ready why it’s important to know about it)
  • Background (when was this disorder first identified as a “concern” in adolescent development? Who has done key research on it? How many children does it affect?)
  • Affect on social health (How does it come about – is it hereditary or influenced by environment? How does it manifest itself – what behaviors might one observe in an individual who has this health conern?
  • Proposed Solution (How might parents, friends, teachers, or medical staff help someone who is struggling with this health concern?)

Sleep deprivation, also recognized as insufficient sleep or at other times, sleeplessness
refers to the condition of not having adequate sleep. It is worth noting that sleep deprivation can
be either chronic or acute and may, to a great extent, vary widely in severity. It is significant to
learn about sleep deprivation as doing so helps one to identify the causes of sleep deprivation,
including how this negatively affects people in society. As far as this is concerned, it becomes
imperative to note that there is no questioning the significance of restorative sleep, and as such, a
certain amount of attention is necessary, especially when it comes to managing as well as
preventing sleep deprivation.
It is worth noting that sleep deprivation happens to be among the most common, but yet
often ignored as well as readily fixable health challenges. Studies indicate that about fifty to
seventy million Americans chronically suffer from sleep deprivation, something that highly
