2020 Essay Subject

Climate Change & Global Warming – The importance of Sustainable Practices

It’s undeniable the impact climate change has caused. Whether it’s the melting of glaciers, extinction of animal species, or forests burning to the ground acre by acre – high temperatures may be the cause.

In 1500 words or less, please explain how climate change impacts our health and the importance of sustainable practices that can positively impact climate change.

About the Scholarship Program:

The Research Leadership Scholarship Program was created in hopes that it may encourage students in various health fields to work toward a future in which obesity and its related problems can be controlled. It should be noted that some of the newer diet supplements out there do a good job in addressing weight management, but consumer products only address a part of the issue.

Our Focus is the Support of Great Education

Our dietary health is one of our base cardinal needs as people. We aim to provide the support the next generation needs to make it easier to change lives.

We need you to help us keep the conversation going on social media. Connect with us on:
