Consider the following scenario:
Due to recent outbreaks of infectious diseases, increased cardiovascular disease, and cancer death in the United States, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Food & Drug Administration (FDA), and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) have formed a joint task force and has tasked you with developing an educational brochure on one of these three topics. Due to the public’s lack of knowledge on these topics, it is your job to assemble a brochure that is informative and educational regarding your chosen topic.
Research your topic using online sources, such as the FDA, CDC, NCI, and local sources for content on your topic for this brochure.
Choose from the following topics:
?As there are too many to list, perform an Internet search.
?Coronary artery disease
?Congestive heart failure
?Hypertensive heart disease
?Inflammatory heart disease
?Peripheral arterial disease
?Rheumatic heart disease
?Melanoma and skin cancers,
Create a 3- to 6-page public service brochure, with appropriate images, to be printed in the Sunday edition of your newspaper. Include the following points:
•Provide a brief background on your chosen disease.
•Identify how this disease develops or how individuals contract the disease.
•Identify ways of preventing this disease.
•How could a fitness or exercise program, if any, help prevent this disease?
•Explain how to treat this disease using conventional medicine and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), otherwise known as holistic medicine.
•Identify the nutritional needs of the individual with this disease, as well as what their diet should be to meet the needs.
•Make recommendations for where readers might search for more information regarding this disease.
•Include credible sources for the information (e.g. not Wikipedia).
The Brochure Builder is very cumbersome. I recommend creating the Brochure in an Office document (Publisher, Powerpoint, etc). The method of submission is not important, the content is.
