The research paper asks for 2 kinds of research, 1.observation/interviewing and 2. scholarly. You are asked to choose a service/site and research the aspect that relates to health and wellness.  You will discover this through visiting the site and/or interviewing a professional or professionals at the site. The focus is on attitudes and beliefs found in the program or service center of your choice. Once you have identified this center from the suggested list below, your job will be to evaluate the attitudes and beliefs you find represented in this program or service center and describe how it aligns with your own personal values and beliefs regarding health and wellness.

    The scholarly research portion is to research the origins of this service/site, the history/origin of the services offered/provided and perhaps the mission statement of the service/site.  A review of your findings is to be incorporated into your paper.
