Question Description

Your second paper will be on non-communicable or chronic disease. Select a disease of your choosing, that is classified as a non-communicable disease.

Provide a complete explanation of:

  • etiology and mechanism of disease
  • signs and symptoms
  • diagnostic methods
  • pathology, systems effected, co-morbidity
  • prognosis, treatments
  • public health impact; who does this effect, how, why, where?
  • technological and research advancements on the horizon.

Students should rely on academic literature and reputable information sources. Papers should be a minimum of 5 pages of text, double spaced, maximum of 8. Minimum of five sources required. The paper and bibliography should be formatted in APA style. Please provide sub-headings to organize your material. If you are not familiar with APA style, I recommend reviewing directions through the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL). They cover all the requirements extensively. We will also go over this briefly in class.

You may use only 1 website as a source. Rely on published literature from academic journals as much as possible. Often, when you find information on a website (like the CDC) they have gathered that from their own published literature. Look for a citation or PDF that you can use as your source, instead of citing the URL.

Grades are based on content (70%), and Mechanics (30%). See the attached rubric for more information on how grades will be assessed.

I encourage you to visit the writing center as you edit your paper. Students who visit the writing center will receive an automatic 2 point addition to their paper grade (for each paper). Just make sure to tell them which class and instructor this paper is for.
