Each Question of the Week includes background information and discussion questions about a featured health topic and is designed to increase user understanding of that topic. The health topics chosen for the Question of the Week relate to middle and high school health curricula, apply to the life-style choices students make, and help students more fully understand the relevance of health-related news to their lives.
