Rebecca Onie: What if our healthcare system kept us healthy?
Rebecca Onie is the founder of Health Leads, a program that connects patients to basic care and resources, such as food and housing, that are the root cause of many health problems.
Tips for Success
- When you find a good source (book, article, web page), record the title, author, and other bibliographic info (journal title, web address, etc.).
- Take notes from your sources.
- As you read, mark the parts you might like to quote in your paper.
- Keep organized. Keep a binder with copies of articles, your notes, and drafts of your outline.
