2019 Essay Subject

Health is Wealth – The Importance of Good Health

There is a true saying that “Health is Wealth”. We should constantly motivate and inform others, including children and older adults, about the importance of making sure your body is, and stays, as healthy as possible for the years to come. At times work, school, relationships, etc. can impact our health in a negative way.

In 1500 words or less, please explain the importance of good health, and how to overcome exterior factors/scenarios that can impact your path to a healthier life.


About the Scholarship Program:

The Dietspotlight.com 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:
