COM 455 Colorado State University Health Benefits of Eating Nuts Paper ONLY CHOOSE option 1 OR 2….which ever you want to do:
Your local public health department has decided to create a campaign that encourages people to eat more nuts because of their potential health benefits. The department plans to focus its education efforts on three main audiences: people over 55, children younger than 12, and college students. As part of the campaign, they need a two-sentence summary of the primary health benefits for each audience.
Find three articles on the health benefits of eating nuts (or a particular nut). Create four versions of your summary that address different audiences:
Appropriate for all of the audiences
Particularly appropriate for seniors
Particularly appropriate for children
Particularly appropriate for college students
When submitting your final summaries, answer the following questions:
What changes did you make to your summaries to accommodate for each of these audiences, and why?
What assumptions about your audiences helped you decide what to include or exclude?
Also, include complete reference information for each of the three articles you used to create your summaries. Lastly, write a one-page memo directed to the Outreach Team of the Public Health Department that includes each of your summaries and justifies your choices.
Include all four (4) versions of the summaries you wrote.
Support your analysis and discussion with research from at least three sources. (You may use the course readings, in addition to other sources found through your research efforts, but citing course readings will not fulfill this requirement.)
Your paper should be 4-5 pages in length, not counting the required title and reference pages.
Your paper must be formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements. (Links to an external site.)

Support your analysis, discussion, and revision suggestions for each of the four executive summaries with research from at least three scholarly sources. (You may use the course readings, in addition to other sources found through your research efforts, but citing course readings will not fulfill this requirement.)
Include links to or copies of the original executive summaries in an Appendix.
