Examples could include laws/regulations targeting smoking, obesity, healthy mothers and babies, vaccinations, etc. Include the following:

1.     Introduction with an overview of the law/regulation, why it was passed, and how it was or is being implemented on the local, state, and/or federal level.

2.     A discussion of who the law/regulation targets and how they are being impacted.

3.     An evaluation of the efficacy of the law/regulation. Include evidence demonstrating whether it is or is not working.

4.     A discussion of the law/regulation’s ethical implications-Do you think this law is fair and ethical in natural? It is being applied ethically/fairly? Were/are there any unforeseen/unintended consequences to be considered?
