Choosing a Topic

Choosing a current health trend is your first challenge. Here are some tips:

  • Choose a topic that you are interested in! The research process is more relevant if you care about your topic.
  • Narrow your topic to something manageable.
    • If your topic is too broad, you will find too much information and not be able to focus.
    • Background reading can help you choose and limit the scope of your topic. 
  • Review the guidelines in your assignment.  Ask your professor or a librarian for suggestions.
  • Google - try a search for health trends or wellness trends
