HWE 200 Introduction to Health and Wellness WK-Assessment

  Dietary Intake Assessment [WLOs: 1, 2, 6] [CLOs: 3, 4]

Dietary intake is a lifestyle factor that has a large effect on  health and wellness. After reviewing the required materials for this  week, assess your dietary intake by tracking your diet and using  appropriate tools to review it. It is suggested you use the MyFitnessPal  website or application (app) to assess your diet, but you may select a  tool of your own as long as it provides you with an analysis of your  diet.

To begin, keep a record of your food intake for at least one day. You  may add your food directly into the MyFitnessPal website or app, or you  may use the sample in the Food Diary – How to Keep Track of What You Eat (Links to an external site.)  web page. You may also create something similar on your own. Assessing  your food intake can help you determine which nutrients you are  consuming in excess and which nutrients you need more of.  Be sure to  include serving sizes and all beverages consumed. Review the MyFitnessPal Tutorial (Links to an external site.) and Introduction to MyFitnessPal (Links to an external site.) YouTube videos for assistance on logging your food and analyzing your diet.

Once you have logged your food intake on the MyFitnessPal website or  app, scroll down and click on the nutrition tab. At the top of the  Nutrition page, “Calories,” “Nutrients,” and “Macros” are displayed.  Select each category to review your daily totals. Pay attention to the  total amount consumed and your goal for each component. Finally, analyze  your diet by answering the questions below in your journal. Your  journal should contain the two parts described below.

Part 1: Assess your diet by addressing the following items: Analyze your daily fat, saturated fat, sugar, carbohydrates, and  caloric intake. Explain how your numbers compared with the goal levels. Identify what vitamins and minerals fell below the goal level. Elaborate on how your protein intake compared with the goal level. Discuss specific grams. Explain the role and importance of consuming each of the following:  Minerals Vitamins Carbohydrates Water Protein Fiber Fat

Part 2: Examine the effects of your diet on your health and wellness by addressing the following items in your journal entry: Identify the effect your diet has on your health and wellness. Does  your dietary intake protect you or increase your health risks? Explain two chronic diseases directly related to an unhealthy diet. Explain two ways you could improve your diet. Be specific and provide examples.

For the journal assignment, write out each question and then answer  it. Your journal should be a minimum of one page in length (not  including the title page or reference page). As a minimum, include the  course textbook and the dietary website you used as references in your  response to this journal activity. Include an APA formatted title page  and reference page. See the Introduction to APA (Links to an external site.) web page in the Ashford Writing Center (Links to an external site.) for guidance. Submit to Waypoint by Day 7.

workers in the American South to attempt to organize, or to join a union.

 it’s like for workers in the American South to attempt to organize, or to join a union. Workers in Tennessee, Mississippi, and South Carolina failed, sometimes overwhelmingly, to vote to be represented by a union in contract negotiations with their employers. Why? Do you think attempts to unionize would have been unsuccessful if the factories you read about had instead been located in Midwestern states, like Illinois, Michigan, and Ohio? Why is the political class of the southern states so opposed to unions? Is that opposition rational? Is it in the economic interests of the people of those states? 

Healthcare Ethics


In 750-1,000 words, identify and describe the issues affecting standards of practice related to competency of medical care identified in the Lyckholm and Hackney article.

In addition to summarizing the relevant points of the article, explain the relevance that standards of practice have (or will have) to you as a practitioner.

Practice Article Summary

For the second assignment, and to give you some practice writing an academic paper in the APA format, students are individually responsible for writing a practice summary of an academic research article. This summary must be a minimum of 1,500 words, including a title page and reference page. APA formatted is required! This assignment is worth 10% of your final grade.

During the first week, each student will pick one article from a group of six. After the article has been assigned, each student will write an article summary (all articles are available on the course website). You may not use any other articles or sources. The articles you may choose from are as follows: After the Promise: The STD Consequences of Adolescent Virginity Pledges The Socialization of Attitudes about Sex and their Role in Adolescent Pornography Use “It’s Just a Lot of Work”: Adolescents’ Self-Presentation Norms and Practices on Facebook and Instagram Queer Youth, Intoxication and Queer Drinking Spaces Transgender Youth and Life-Threatening Behaviors Time Perspective, Sports Club Membership, and Physical Self-Concept among Adolescents

For this practice article summary, it is important for students not to inject their personal opinions or ideas, using value-free language and remaining as impartial and objective as possible. Avoid focusing on charts or illustrations, and instead focus on summarizing the author’s ideas, research question, hypothesis, methodology, results, and discussion. Examples of article summaries and writing suggestions will be provided to you.

Avoid long quotes in your summary, and paraphrase whenever possible, citing the author’s last name and year of the publication.

Maximum quotes = 2 short quotes (less than 40 words each).

Correct APA formatting is also required – double-spaced, 12 pt Times New Roman font, 1 inch margins all around, APA in-text citations, running header, title page, and a reference page. Run spelling and grammar checks and double-check your APA formatting. Be sure to CITE your sources throughout the summary.

Discussion 1: Informed Consent

nformed consent means that a social worker or another professional will not intervene in a client’s life or release confidential information about him unless that client has freely consented
— Dolgoff, Harrington, & Loewenberg, 2012, p. 160


Social workers are bound by the NASW Code of Ethics (2008) to provide informed consent with every client. A signed informed consent form protects the client and the social worker. It exemplifies the profession’s respect for its clients, allows for self-determination, and is the cornerstone of good social work practice. Sometimes, though, reporting of confidential information is mandated by law.
By Day 3

Post a description of the importance of confidentiality when working with your client. How does the principle of confidentiality impact the therapeutic relationship? Then, explain your understanding of mandated reporting and how it empowers vulnerable populations.
