The 2013-2015 Ebola epidemic, the largest in history, has caused the United States Department of Health and Human Services to re-evaluate its public health response and emerging/re-emerging/novel disease preparedness.
As the Lead Public Health Analyst at HHS you have been tasked with preparing a high-level emerging threats report. The target audience for this emerging threats report is for both scientific and policy communities. In addition, you have been asked to transform the high-level emerging threats report into a PowerPoint Presentation that will be posted on HHSs website for the general public. You will work in your assigned groups to conduct the last deliverable.
Scenario: Imagine its 9am and you walk into a meeting at work. You have just been asked to write a report on emerging infectious disease threats for the scientific and policy community. Your management outlines all the various data they would like to see in the report, i.e., a list of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases and a brief description about each disease, the various policies that exist and a list of entities that work towards fighting this global problem.
You walk back to your desk, thinking I got this. Whats the first thing you do? You look for a template for the report. Guess what there is none. So I guess its just you, your brilliant graduate-level research skills and the various items you jotted down in the meeting that your management would like to see in the report.
