You should select two of the following health
- Social Inclusion
- Income and Wealth Inequalities
- Physical and Built Environment
- Racial Inequalities
- 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.
bibliography should be organized using the following headings:
- Health Policy One
- Federal Law
- State Law
- Law Review Articles and Book
- Interdisciplinary Articles and
- 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
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
- 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
