Researcher Question

The Researcher 

The methods section of research articles explains what took place during the research project. Some are very detailed and elaborate, while some lack details and only provide the basics.

In this assignment, you will choose and analyze a peer-reviewed article on a health and wellness topic. Then you will reflect on the new learning you have acquired about research.

Create a 2- to 3-page paper (not including the title and references pages) in a Word document for your response. Use APA format for citations.
