You will choose a recent media article related to both genetics AND a public health issue. Your job will be to prepare and record a ~15 minute PowerPoint presentation inspired by the issue described in the article and your research into it. The article is just the inspiration…make sure your presentation includes a healthy dose of your own research. You should explain why this topic is important, give background that will help us understand any genetic/biological AND social issues surrounding the topic, tell us who is most affected by this public health problem, and explain what has been done so far to address it. Your final slide(s) must include a full list of your references and they should be mostly from respected, peer reviewed journals/sources.
Recent public health media articles should be used for this assignment. NPR and NY Times are two good sources. Try to choose something from the past year (but if you find something super interesting from the past 3 years that is OK too). Your presentations will be available to your classmates to view. Instructions on how to record and upload your video to Blackboard are provided under the Communication Project tab on Blackboard.
