Task: Submit to complete this assignment
Due September 16 at 11:59 PM
You will create a workshop proposal to educate your community on adopting healthy food choices and applying them to everyday life.
You will begin with a short introduction (approximately 300 words) on the background of nutrition and behavior relationship and the reasons for this workshop. You will end the proposal with a short summary of future recommendations for lifestyle change. Be sure to note whether the research you have used as resources in your workshop has followed ethical procedures in methods and especially in the choice of a diverse population of participants. It is very important for gaining confidence of your attendees.
Generally, a workshop is a single educational program of variable duration (could be from 45 minutes to two days) designed to teach or introduce a particular practical skills, techniques, or ideas which the attendees can use in their work or their daily lives. Since workshops allow for some personal attention, they are usually small (6 to 20 participants) and are presented for a group that has something in common. In your case, it will be your community.
Please use the resources available for this week to help you in creating a successful workshop.
Your references should include at least 10 articles pertaining to the population of your choice. Up to five of these references can be from scholarly Internet sources, including government and educational websites. The remainder of the resources should be articles published in peer-reviewed journals within the past five years. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles may be included. Be sure to think about what myths and misinformation your workshop attendees might have, and incorporate material to address those with accurate information and recommendations.
Length: 10-12 pages not including title and reference pages.
Your proposal should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standard
