Assemble a brochure that is informative and educational regarding a disease, social science homework help

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 and obtain faculty approval:

  • Infectious disease
    • As there are too many to list, perform an Internet search.
  • Cardiovascular diseases
    • Coronary artery disease
    • Cardiomyopathy
    • Congestive heart failure
    • Hypertensive heart disease
    • Heart failure
    • Cor pulmonale
    • Cardiac dysrhythmias
    • Inflammatory heart disease
    • Valvular heart disease
    • Cerebrovascular disease
    • Peripheral arterial disease
    • Congenital heart disease
    • Rheumatic heart disease
  • Cancer
    • As there are too many to list, perform an Internet search.

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).
