Now, it’s your turn to apply this knowledge. For your final assignment, you’ll review a research article to identify the research conclusion. Then, you’ll take another look at that conclusion from the perspective of one of the major sociological theories.
Instructions: Complete all three parts of the assignment by following the instructions below.
PART A: WHAT DID THE RESEARCHERS LEARN? 1) Article Review:
a) Prepare to complete your assignment by reviewing the articles below. Select one for the focus of your assignment.
• Money, Not Access, Key to Resident Food Choices in ‘Food Deserts’ https://news.ncsu.edu/2017/03/moneyfood-deserts-2017/

PART C: WHAT DO YOU THINK? Use your article to help answer the questions below. You should write two paragraphs, one for each question.
