My final topic for the Annotated Bibliography is Childhood Obesity. I decided on my topic because Iím extremely interested in it. Being a Nutrition Science major, I am beginning to narrow down exactly what I want to do in the future. I am set on wanting to become a Registered Dietitian, but there are a wide variety of branches of that. Although working with patients with different types of diseases in a hospital setting is interesting, I donít think itís necessarily for me. I really love working with children, which is why I started to want to be a Pediatric Dietitian. Child Obesity is a huge problem right now, with number rising every day. If I decided to specialize in pediatric nutrition, working with children that are obese is something I will eventually have to face. I thought the more research I do the better.
When I first started the project, I looked for sources through the library website and all of the books on my topic were at the Science and Health library. They have all the different science topics perfectly organized and easy to find. There was a shelf full of different Childhood Obesity books. It was tough for me because although I liked many of the books, some were before 2008. So once I picked all of my books out, I had to narrow them down one last time. I have 10 written sources from the library, all books. The other five sources I have from the online East Carolina website, some are journals and others are articles. I think that the book sources are the most relevant. They have tons of information and all of the information is from different Registered Dietitianís points of views. Considering that we canít have sources before 2008, all of my information is extremely relevant and helpful. A lot has changed within the last few years dealing with the topic. I think that I pretty much understand what I need to do for this project. The fact that Iím so interested in the topic helps push me to want to do it effectively and learn as much as I can.
