                          Rotation B: Diagnosis & Recommendations

             After completing Rotation A, you are considered an expert in that area of research.

       Unfortunately, the public knows very little about the topic - but they should know more about it!

Therefore, a local television station has asked you to create a public service announcement to explain
  what you learned. You need to follow all of the guidelines below for your public service announcement


  Prepare a brief (up to 3 minutes) public service announcement to explain why there should be more
  funding for research and treatment for your disease/condition. Make a prop/poster that will help you
  present your findings to the public. Your announcement should contain all the answers to the above
                                       questions from Rotation A.

       Explain the factor that you researched (such as bulimia or smoking cigarettes)
       Explain how it affects the human body (by answering all of the questions you researched)
       Create a prop or poster and your write-up you developed as homework from Rotation A
       Use your own words
       No more than three minutes in length
       It can be serious, funny or dramatic. Just make sure you cover all of the points above.

When you know what you are going to say, you will act out your message in front of a video camera that
will be in the room.
Remember - your fellow doctors are counting on your public service announcement to make sure the
public is aware of this health problem! Good luck!
