You should select two of the following health policy areas:

  • Social Inclusion
  • Income and Wealth Inequalities
  • Physical and Built Environment
  • Racial Inequalities
  • Education
  • Sustainable Transportation
  • Conditions for Children
  • Health Care Disparities

After selecting a health policy area, select at least one strategy that you believe must be implement. Conduct research on that strategy and write an annotated bibliography.

 The bibliography must contain at least 10 sources (minimum to receive any credit) for each Health Policy area.   For each policy area there must be two sources from non-legal interdisciplinary sources and two must be law review articles. News articles, articles from popular press and websites,  Do NOT count  toward the minimum number of sources although I do encourage you to include them and will take them into consideration with considering the grade for the annotated bibliography.   At least,  one annotation for each health policy area must address a diversity issue such as race, ethnicity, gender, class,  disability, religion, or sexual orientation.

Your annotated bibliography should include relevant primary sources on laws and statutes and regulations.

Your annotated bibliography should be organized using the following headings:

  • Introduction
  • Health Policy One
    • Federal Law
      • Constitution
      • Statutes
      • Regulations
    • State Law
      • Constitution
      • Statutes
      • Regulations
    • Law Review Articles and Book Chapters
    • Interdisciplinary Articles and Book Chapters
    • Other (News articles, popular press and website)
  • Health Policy Two (same as One)

Your annotated bibliography should have a cover sheet that includes:

  • Introduction: number of words
  • Citations organized as above

Your annotated bibliography should have introduction which gives an overview of the topic or issue including a summary of some of the key issues and your personal views on the topics. Your introduction should be at least 700 words.

For each reading, your annotation should include: citation, description, critical comment and total number of pages read. Your citation should be in bluebook format. Each annotation should be no more than approximately 350 words . It should include a synopsis of the author's primary arguments and a critique of those arguments. It should include whether the source contains a bibliography. Be aware simply paraphrasing the article is consider plagiarism and will result in a failing grade for the course. Your annotations should be your summary in your own words.

The grade earned will be based on the:

  • quantity of readings 
  • the relevancy of the readings to your topic
  • the comprehensiveness of your cites (such statutes, cases, law review)
  • the quality of your annotations


The final annotation will be published on this website
