Thursday – 3/30 

This class needs to go to computer lab B220 from as soon as you take attendance to 12:26.  While in the lab, students should work on doing a one page research report answering questions relating to one health concern they want to know more about and have questions concerning how food/nutrition/overall wellness plays a major role to help overcome this disease, recover quicker, improve health and outcome. They should also include information about various health concerns that might influence not only consumers’ food choice motives but also consumers’ subsequent attitudes toward healthy eating.

 Examples:  Cancer treatment/chemotherapy/radiation, Diabetes, Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Hyperactivity, Digestive Disorders, Food Allergies/Intolerances, Osteoporosis, Kidney Disease, AIDS/HIV, Obesity, or a topic of their choice they want to know more about.

What do we know about this disease?  Who might be more susceptible to it?  Why is it a hereditary concern? What progressive treatments are being developed relating to improving nutrition and wellness? How does food/nutrition help improve the effects of the disease?

Good website:

They can go to my website to find this information through the LSW website and looking for McCranie in the teacher list under academics then look at the current posts on the right side of my page.

Return to the class at 12:26 for a speaker who is an officer in FCCLA (state/national?)  If she is running late, doesn’t show or the presentation does not last the 30-40 min. she said it would then have the students share some of their findings about their research papers.
