Unit 1 focuses on the health status of your core family (parents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles,
grandparents, nieces and nephews). You will collect relevant health information for each
family member. The purpose of this project is to be able become proactive in good health and
wellness by becoming knowledgeable about possibly genetic and lifestyle health factors that
may be affecting you. All of the health information will be presented on a family health tree,
and you are encouraged to be creative. After assembling the health tree, you will examine it
for lifestyle risk factors and disease patterns. If particular diseases or disorders run through
several members of the family, you will investigate that disease (using textbooks, professional
peer-reviewed journals, and Internet sources) to determine what risk factors are associated
with the disease and whether or not there is a known genetic or familial predisposition. Based
on the analysis of health conditions and risk factors occurring on both sides of your family
(maternal and paternal), you will then write a summary of your findings in a research paper
and develop personal risk-reduction measures. Read the chapters in Unit 1 so that you can
plan your data collection accordingly. This project should be completed over the duration of
the course and in conjunction with the other units. It is recommended that you complete the
data collection phase of the project by the time you reach unit 6. Following Unit 6, you should
assemble your family tree, and then write the research paper.
The family health tree is a major assignment and will take considerable effort
throughout the entire course. You should spend the first portion of the course
collecting data, followed by assembling your tree, and finally writing the paper during
the latter part of the course. You will be graded on the following:
