I am interested in alternative medicine and would like to develop a presentation for my public health education capstone describing different modalities backed by reputable data. Where can I begin?
The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health is a good place to get started with your research and can be found here https://www.nccih.nih.gov/. This website includes a list of health topics which you can browse to help you narrow your focus. For more articles, check out PubMed part of the National Library of Medicine found at https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/. Here you can search the topics of your choice and access scholarly content to support your project.

My professor requires that I cite my sources of information in APA format. Can you point in the right direction to make sure I am citing my sources correctly?
Citing your sources can be daunting at first, but you have resources to help! One free resources to get you started is Zotero. Zotero is a citation manager that can help you build the citation. However, I always recommend comparing the resulting citation to the applicable style guide, which is APA in your case. You can verify the formatting on the official APA website at https://apastyle.apa.org/style-grammar-guidelines/references/examples. You will need to select what type of resource you are using (website, book, article, etc.).
Could you provide me with credible sources for a paper I am writing on the negative effects of limited access to early childhood literacy experiences and long-term educational attainment?
Early childhood educational topics can be researched using your university's databases. Depending on your access, EBSCO databases may be your first source to research this topic. ERIC is a good database source for articles on child development topics. You should begin your search with the keywords: "early childhood" + "literacy" + "educational attainment".
