Research your topic using online sources such as the FDA, CDC, NCI, and local sources for content on your topic for this presentation.
Create a 16- to 19-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation with appropriate images to be presented to your community in which you:
- Provide a brief background on your chosen disease.
