BIO QUESTION

 DUE   Jan/2/2018          2PM     Los Angeles Time Zone 

To prepare for the discussion read the following articles:

“I had my DNA picture taken with varying results”  

FDA warns maker of genetic-testing kits

http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/fda-warns-maker-of-genetic-testing-kit/2013/11/25/7a778aa4-55ef-11e3-835d-e7173847c7cc_story.html

For this discussion, you should address: Would you would be willing to undergo genetic testing?  If so, would you be willing to test for any diseases/conditions or just some? Some examples  – would you only want to test for fatal conditions? would you limit your testing to diseases you can do something about (cancers that you could be screened for or things like heart disease that changing your lifestyle might avoid? Conversely,  would you only want to be tested for conditions that are completely genetic where the testing is more accurate?   What type of regulations should be imposed on genetic test kits marketed towards consumers?

When you reply to your classmates, you should: Pose questions to encourage them to consider a different viewpoint than what they stated. Provide further information on a particular aspect of genetic testing or genetic test kits.

Global Health Paper (Topic HIV in Swaziland ) Country in Africa @tutorfaith

Useful Resources: APA Citation Guide (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. APA Citation and Referencing: 6th Edition (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. What is Peer Reviewed?

The purpose of this assignment is to gain global health perspective of public health topics and to learn how to write a goal statement. Students will then write a brief paper fulfilling all of the requirements below.

Technical Requirements: 400 – 600 words (not including in text citations or reference list) Double-spaced, 12 point Times New Roman font, 1” margins, essay format Less than 20% of the word count should be direct quotes Submit to the correct link in assignments. This uploads your paper to TurnItIn a plagiarism detection device. See plagiarism information under Institutional Policies. Correct spelling, grammar, and sentence structure Use APA referencing style. Must cite all sources of information. See APA Style Citation Guide in Canvas. o Do not need to include APA formatting (for example, title page, running head, or abstract) All information must be accurate Use current (within 10 years), peer-reviewed journal articles or non-partisan data (example: World Health Organization). Be wary of non-credible sources or biased sources. 1 reference must be a peer-reviewed journal article published within the past 10 years All information must be from reputable and reliable academic sources Note: Governmental publications, such as the MMWR, are credible but do not qualify as peer-reviewed journal articles. Peer-reviewed journal articles are externally reviewed for accuracy and content. Students who submit a paper written on a topic other that one approved/assigned by the instructor will automatically receive a 50% point deduction.

Content Requirements: Background information about the country in 1 paragraph (This is your introduction paragraph) Include at least 3 different pieces of background information that are relevant to your topic. Some examples may include access to health services, population distribution by age, human rights and/or political issues, economic issues such as poverty, urban or rural distribution of population, social, religious, or cultural norms as it pertains to your topic. The connection to your topic should be made obvious. This section should not deal directly with your health problem. It should help the reader understand your country from an outsider’s perspective, yet be relevant to the health problem.   Brief description of the health problem in 1 – 2 paragraphs Define the health problem Include risk factors and consequences Include at least 2 pieces of epidemiologic data published within the past 10 years, which may include incidence rates, prevalence rates, and/or death rates At least one reference for this section must be from a peer-reviewed journal article published within the last 10 years. Create an original goal statement (1-2 sentences) that addresses a way to improve the health problem/improve health. It must follow the structure as described below by being concise, measureable, specific, and realistic.  In addition, it must include the following:  Who is the target population? All citizens of country does not represent a specific target population.      What is the health problem? Choose just one problem to address in your one  How much change (represented by a percent) do you anticipate? Tip: A 10% change within 10 years is a realistic goal. By when will the change occur? This should be represented by a specific end date. If you are unsure about a goal’s realism, I recommend you review goal statements from Healthy People 2020: http://www.healthypeople.gov/2020/topicsobjectives2020/ (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.

Example goal statement for the problem of Hearing loss among German elderly adults, leading to social isolation: Our goal is to improve the identification of hearing loss in elderly adults. German adults between the ages of 70 – 85 (who) will experience an increase hearing screenings (what) by 10% (how much) within the next 10 years (by when). Notice the goal statement includes the 4 required components: who, what, how much, and by when. It is also realistic.
