As you prepare to formulate questions that can be translated into research designs, what health topics do you find meaningful or of interest, and why? Feel free to share details about personal experiences or your interest in topics that you believe are not receiving enough attention in public health research and warrant additional research.
REPLY TO MY CLASSMATE’S RESPONSE TO THE ABOVE QUESTION AND EXPLAIN WHY YOU AGREE? (A MINIMUM OF 125 WORDS or MORE)
There are many health topics that interest me that have afflicted my family throughout my life. Diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and sickle cell just to name a few, have plagued my family for decades. Even as strides in research have been made on the afore mentioned diseases. I feel there is a long way to go. My maternal grandmother and aunt both passed way due to cancer, and my father has been battling multiple-myleoma cancer for almost six years, he was in remission for about six months but there is no cure. Sickle cell affected my daughter as she had to witness her best friend battle the disease but sadly, she succumbed to it their freshman year in high school. It was very heartbreaking to witness, but more devastating is there is no known cure. I believe these health topics need to be addressed so cures can be found.
