MEAS 242: Disease Conditions - Indianapolis

PowerPoint Presentation

Medical terminology is complicated, which can be problematic for patients who need to understand how to manage their disease or their medication regimen.  Medical professionals must be able to rephrase difficult terms or explain them to their patients using lay or plain language.

Part of your research assignment is to create a patient education presentation for your selected disease topic. 

  • Your presentation will be created using Microsoft PowerPoint.
  • The slides in your presentation should use lay (or plain) language rather than medical terminology. 
  • Slides should include colorful pictures and instructions.
