We will continue our exploration of wellness through the four general education lenses and the humanities, with a focus on art and culture.

Review the module resources and overview, then select a popular culture example. (It can be a television show, a commercial, a game, a movie, etc.) Analyze the representation and social message that is associated with the example. If you like, you can select a particular episode of a show.

In your initial post,
briefly describe the popular culture example
you selected and address the following:

· Share a link and/or summarize your topic so that we all have enough information to understand your discussion even if we are unfamiliar with the example.

· Discuss how your example relates to the concept of wellness as defined in this course and how it relates to specific challenges or supports of wellness.

· What are the social implications of this message? Briefly discuss any potential social impact or response to the example.
