Your Instructor has a health communication scenario that can be used in this module. Health literacy and good communication skills are extremely important to crisis and other types of health communications. Public health professionals need to be able to apply concepts of pathophysiology in order to effectively communicate what is known about the situation and determine appropriate actions for prevention and control.
Create an Annotated Bibliography to help you locate, understand, and organize the literature on this topic. Locate at least four recent, primary research articles on the biological agent in the scenario to help you determine the pathophysiology and human health risk of the organism. In addition to the research articles on the biological agent, you may wish to include some resources on health communications and high quality secondary sources such as review articles and scholarly public health websites (e.g., NCHS, CDC, WHO, etc.).
