Pamphlet addressing non­scientific community and presentation
Addresses Learning Outcome:

Recognize risk factors leading to disease and identify preventive measures and treatments.  

This assignment is designed for you to demonstrate your ability to communicate your 
knowledge of a disease in the lay (non­scientific and non­medical) public. You will select
and research a unique chronic or preventable disease during the first two weeks of the 
course. Sources for disease­related topics include the National Institutes of Health 
(www.nih.gov), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (www.cdc.gov), the 
Mayo Clinic (www.mayoclinic.com), and Medline Plus (www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/).
Create an informative pamphlet for a nonscientific community about the chosen chronic 
or preventable disease. Give a brief description of the disease, including its symptoms 
and signs, explain the effects of the disease on the healthy body function of cellular, 
tissue, organ, and organ system levels, relating the effects to the observed symptoms.  
Analyze the risk factors contributing to the onset of the disease and preventive steps 
available to the targeted audience. Describe how a person suffering from the disease 
can maintain a desirable quality of life as well as minimize or slow the progress of the 
disease. Discuss available diagnostic and therapeutic tools and possible outcomes of 
the disease. Describe current research and possible future reserch directions.
You will post the pamphlet in a designated discussion conference by the end of week 7. 
As a presenter and topic expert, you will be responsible for answering classmates' 
questions and reacting to their comments. You will also read classmates' pamphlets and
will have a chance to discuss them during the last week of the class.

At a minimum, your pamphlet should contain the following required elements:

 Body of the pamphlet          

Addresses signs, symptoms 


Explains effects of the disease on healthy body functions, and relates this 
to signs and symptoms 


Analyzes risk factors and preventive steps 


Describes maintenance of quality of life 


Discusses diagnostic and therapeutic tools 


Explains expected outcomes and prognosis 


Describes current areas of research into prevention, treatment or cure 



Describes possible future areas of research into prevention, treatment or 


List all references at the end of your pamphlet. You must use at least five references 
from credible, scientifically rigorous sources and cite them using American 
Psychological Association (APA) style. Two or more references should be from the 
UMUC Library. The references cited should be no older than seven years (published 
2004 ­ 2011).  References should be listed on a separate page that does not count 
toward the required length of the paper.
Please SAVE your pamphlet as a .pdf file. I have a lot of trouble opening .docx files 
and pdf preserves the original formatting. 
Please SUBMIT your pdf file to BOTH "Assignments" and to "Content/Course 
Content/Week 8/Pamphlet Discussion.

Your grade will depend upon the content and clarity of your presentation as well as your
ability to answer questions from classmates and the instructor. Keep in mind that longer 
does not always mean better. Good writing practices, including the use of correct 
grammar, punctuation, sentence and paragraph structure, and a clear flow of thought, 
will account for a portion of your grade.
The entire project is worth up to 240 points, according to the rubric below.


30 points for the Pre­Pamphlet Assignments (Earning 30 points is 
equivalent to earning 100% on the Pre­pamphlet assignments)


200 points for the Final Pamphlet (Earning 200 points is equivalent to 
earning 100% on for the Final Pamphlet assignment)


10 points for the Conference Presentation (Earning 10 points is equivalent 
to earning 100% on the conference presentation)

**IMPORTANT: Please note that rubric points will be scaled to point allocations listed in 
the Grading Criteria.
