Select 2 family members (or friends if you do not have any family members to ask) and complete a family history interview/assessment. Before you start interviewing, come up with open-minded family focused questions. Some areas that you will explore in this health history will be nutrition/dietary practices, smoking/drinking/illegal and prescription drug use, sleep/rest patterns, elimination schedule (daily, weekly, etc.), exercise/activity practices, wellness check-ups, conditions/diseases, stress management, self-image, etc.
Write a detailed 3 page report and include the information you found from both family members. Note similarities and differences between the two family members. Note any similarities you share with these family members. Give a short definition of any diagnosed health condition that your family members have. Include information on risk factors for hypokinetic disease. (Hypokinetic diseases include obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, type 2 diabetes, and lower back pain) You will find a link in lesson 4 that provides information about hypokinetic disease.
Use proper grammar, spelling, sentence structure, capitalization, and punctuation. Do not give names, just relationships to you and each other. This should be a thorough written report, typed, double spaced, using Arial font size 12 with margins no greater than 1.25. The written report should be a minimum of 3 pages. Any paper that is shorter than 3 full pages will receive point deductions.
The paper should be written as a report and not just answers under the questions. AGAIN, DO NOT JUST LIST ANSWERS UNDER THE QUESTIONS. THIS SHOULD BE WRITTEN AS A PAPER. Please include an attached document and cut and paste into the submission box. It is difficult to open some attached documents and impedes the grading process.
