Public scholarships can be seen as helpful for many. These allow the diverse groups of people on campus to become something greater than themselves. In this new environment they are able to collaborate with others. Under the help of faculty they are able to learn civic responsibility and public knowledge. The disadvantage to this is that this is more supported by more social individuals while less social people’s opinions are not as easily entered into places like this. Places like this create areas where individual ideas could be put down for being too far out from the norm.

For my mypage site, I made it public for everyone to view on the internet. At first when I created the page there wasn’t anything on it so I was open to people being able to view it since I’m not a shy person. Later on I thought about making it more private ,but ran into difficulties trying to do that so i eventually keep it open to the public. I don’t think that it had to much of an influence on my writing pressure wise. I feel like it made me more confident in my ability to make my opinion heard better through my writing as the only things on my mypage were my own writing products.

Before I started making this site I was very unclear on what really interested me in the healthcare field. There were so many different area and focuses that I became overwhelmed with what i should do with myself. As i completed assignments I found myself trying to figure out what really needed to be done in healthcare. This idea was sparked by my first paper where i wrote about how people needed to take a bigger role in their own health. As I researched deeper into this topic I found that hospitals have not change much and no one seemed to be to interested in that. This opened my eyes as I thought that people shouldn’t rely 100% on a place like this. Eventually, i understood that a hospital can not be entirely blamed for their shortcomings. When someone gets sick they can not just get an instant cure from their doctor. It's something that they must work on along with their doctor and there is a degree of responsibility to take care of oneself.

If I hadn't created this mypage I would've never found all this out. On top of that, I never know I could have looked into a topic so much on my own with being told specifically to look into like in many of my other classes. Creating this site showed my that even without direction I find something that interests me and drives me to try and find out more. Ultimately, looking back I would never believed I could make something like this and making this site has made me feel better about my independent ability.

At the end of the day I how that people view this site as something that helped me personally grow little by little. When someone sees my mypage I want them to see that I have a strong interest in the medical field and want to help make the system better in anyway. Personally I see the best way to help make a change in the field would generally creating a system were patients and doctors work together towards a goal of overall long term health. One of the best ways to reach this goal would be through education the public as this is the strong way to help those who don't know how to ask for help.    




Hello, my name is Kirby Toussaint and this I the mypage I created. Over the past few months as I created this page that brought different aspects of healthcare together and seemed difficult to find the overarching theme. Ultimately I found that it had been looking be in the face the whole time as my writing had a similar underlying message. This mypage focuses on my interest on the need for change the medical field. This change being that we must be more proactive in healthcare by building a stronger bond between doctors and patients as well as putting more of the patients control in their own hands.

From my first paper I believed that mistakes in the medical field can have drastic consequences because of minor errors and miss communications. Millions of people have been negatively affected by this and i personally fall under this category. At the end of the day it isn’t one specific person fault but really the lack of reform to do change these problems. These site shows how I believe that it is possible for a positive change to happen and help create a better healthcare system.

This sites is based on the idea that health shouldn’t be something we just take care of at hospital and with our doctors. The best way to maintain a good quality of health is by being proactive instead of reactive. To do that we can no longer rely only on or doctors and caregivers. True health can be reached by making personal choices to better ourselves along with the aid from hospitals and clinics.

Thought out this site it can be seen ways that people can take their health into their own hands in a number of ways. Along with this, how we can help with the health of others around. Many people are afraid to help others that battle continuous illness and don't know where to start. In the one of my papers and my PSA i focused on one of these major problems, mental illness. Many Americans today face a daily struggle with this illness as 1 in 5 adults have a mental issue. This is a growing problem that many people face alone because of the lack of awareness and understanding of the issues it causes. When I first started researching this i was very unclear on what the actually issues was with mental health and didn’t know that there so many numerous forms of it. After educating myself on the topic I found it to be something very important to maintain health. A health body starts with a health mind. Many conditions that must Americans have stemmed from a mental illness. The problem is that the stigma around mental illness is very negative and people with it are seen as crazy and incurable. That why this site is focused on education people that health is a continuous battle that can be won through personal care and awareness.
