Researching the Health Topic
For our project, we don’t have one main health topic to target, but

health, and create an incredibly specific magazine to make healthy living easier at Tech.
create sections of the news paper covering each of the six dimensions of wellness, as well as
provide supplemental information pertaining to topics that we think are especially important to Tech
students (such as the athlete interview, fun things to do around Atlanta, philanthropic suggestions,
how to balance your life).
Some of the sources on campus that we plan to use are the CRC, the
Health Center, and of course, the library.

information, and we have listed some of the ones we have chosen to use thus far below in the
