Literature Review: Obesity

Develop a 3-5 page literature review on your health topic. You SHOULD create an annotated bibliography BEFORE beginning the literature review process. The literature review serves as a rationale for your health promotion program project. The purpose of the literature review is to convey the greater health concern link raised by your project and include national data when possible. For example, if you want to implement a physical activity program for children, you could link it to obesity, while also emphasizing childhood obesity rates. In addition, please highlight what, if any, programming has been done in the past. You should also mention if there is little or no research on your topic area. For example, there is little research on the physical activity of premature infants, which makes this a unique intervention model. In this case, you would need to establish the rationale in order to highlight the research that shows premature infants are more likely to become obese. You need the reader to understand why your topic is important and that your approach will work. The literature review should conclude with a concise statement of purpose. Make sure the majority of your statements are supported by research; this shows the audience that you have thoroughly investigated the problem and potential solutions and are basing this on research and not your opinions or feelings.

**Chart Included**
Measurement, Measures, Instrument, and Sampling Chart

Based on your proposed project, create a 2-by-4 measurement chart that includes sampling, measurements, and the instruments that might be used. Clearly describe each of these components and include references for existing instruments. Use the “create table” feature in Microsoft Word to create the measurement chart using an 11 or 12 pt. font for the text. This chart should not to exceed one page in length, with one-inch margins on all four sides. In accordance with the other parts of your assignment, this piece should also follow APA (6th ed. guidelines).
