Week 2 Assignment: It’s a “-demic”
Imagine you are completing an internship at your state’s health department, and you have been tasked with giving a presentation to the entire department about the terms endemic, pandemic, and epidemic and how they relate to public health.
For this assignment:
- Create a PowerPoint presentation with three to six slides that defines and compares the three terms and how they relate to public health
- For each term, select a disease that fits into the definition of the term
- Discuss prevention and disease control for each example and how they could potentially be improved
- Explain why public health employees need to understand these terms, and what could happen if the terms are not understood
- Be sure to use the notes section on the slides to fully explain each part of the assignment
This PowerPoint presentation should be written in current APA Style 7th edition, including both a title slide and a reference list slide of all sources used (***not part of the required slide count***).
