3 pages essay/ social health

3-5 PAGE ESSAY – double-spaced – Please offer an in-depth exploration. Choose another “illness” besides PMS (examples: Anorexia Nervosa, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Pediatric Obesity, etc.) Research the illness via the internet. How is this illness “socially constructed” as an illness? How has this illness gotten medicalized? Apply Weitz’s discussion in chapter 5, Peter Conrad’s discussion on “The Medicalization of Everything” and the video of Robyn Stein DeLuca on “The Good News About PMS” to examine how the illness you have chosen has been socially constructed. Support your ideas by examples and quotes from your online resources as well as from the required materials. Papers that do not make in-depth connections to all required materials (the reading, podcast and video clip) will not receive full credit. _______________ 1- read the attachment 2- watch https://www.ted.com/talks/robyn_stein_deluca_the_good_news_about_pms#t-203266 3- Listen to https://thesocietypages.org/officehours/2010/08/02/peter-conrad-on-the-medicalization-of-everything/ [Go to the link and then click on”Download Office Hours #1 now!” in order to access the podcast]
