Go to www.environmentalhealthnews.org and find a recent article on a general topic covered in this course (i.e. toxicology, air pollution, food safety, etc.). It should not be on a case study presented by Dr. Vandenberg. The article must have been published between 2013-2014. It must be considered a news story (not an opinion piece, an editorial, etc.)
Provide a brief review of the news article. What general topic is it discussing? How does the information covered in the article relate to what we discusses in class? Is the article written in a clear way? Does it appropriately discuss the relevant scientific issues? What additional background information could help the reader to better understand the issues and/or results being discussed?
Prepare a short “case study” using this article and your own additional background research. Explain (at a level appropriate for Public Health 303 students) what the relevant scientific, social/political and economic issues are. What greater point does this case study make for the study of Environmental Health? Provide a rationale for why this material would be important for PH303 students to understand.
You must include a copy of the news article you selected.
Formatting requirements: Use Arial 11 point font. Double spaced. 1-inch margins. Put your name in the top header (so it will appear at the top of every page), and number the pages.
