Many sustainable development goals are featured on the United Nation’s website. Among all of them, I chose to write about the one named “Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages” for two reasons. Firstly, this goal is directly related to my field of study since I will study to become a medical ultrasound technician in my next session. Indeed, I think that medical ultrasound is useful to discover different health issues. Moreover, it is a very useful technique to make sure that the baby’s growth is normal. For these two reasons, I would say that ultrasound is connected to this goal because we use it to ensure healthy lives. Also, as mentioned on the website WebMD, ultrasounds are less expensive than other methods, they capture images of soft tissues that do not show up well on X-rays and they are painless in general. Once again, for these three reasons, ultrasound is a part of sustainable development. Finally, one of the main issues in Quebec is the notion about well-being for all at all age. It is a problem because between all age groups a lot of seniors do not receive as much health care as they should. For example, an article posted by CTV News said that many of the residents from the CHSLD Herron died and reports emerged of negligent conditions. In conclusion, cases similar to the ones that were reported in this CHSLD are very problematic because senior's well-being are at risk.
