Infectious Disease Project
Topic
For your final essay, you will be preparing a persuasive response to the following question:
In a world where we each have the autonomy to decide what we do with our own bodies including the decision to treat a specific illness, take a vaccine or opt for physician-assisted suicide. How do we persuade others to prevent future incidents of disease (caused by your pathogen) and mitigate current infections of your pathogen?
Just like right now with the pandemic, people are going to be divided on the idea of persuasion to do something versus something else. In a good persuasive essay, the writer will anticipate reasons a person might give against your recommendation and ward those off in the essay.
Essay Instructions
1. Use what you have learned this semester about your pathogen to help write your response. You should be able to provide significant support to your work with the information you have studied about your pathogen – You are the “expert” on your selected topic.
2. The essay must be at least three pages (of content) – double-spaced with 1” margins. You must provide a title page and reference page – five pages total.
3. The essay should be in APA format. For more help on formatting in APA, go to the OWL APA Formatting Guide Webpage.
• Page 1→Title page – Name, Date, Institution, Intructor and Course Name/Number
• Pages 2 – 4→Three pages of content
• Page 4→Works Cited page should be setup according to the APA guidelines and include a
minimum of five peer-reviewed journal articles to support your work.
Your essay should include an introduction or background on the pathogen (enough to support your reasons
why this is necessary); at least THREE arguments to support your work; address an opposing viewpoint; and a
conclusion paragraph.

4. If it is one minute after, it will not be graded and you will get a zero (no excuses, no debates).
5. *REMINDER* Peer-reviewed sources must be from academic journals – no wikis, encyclopedias, magazines, etc.
6. The essay will be checked by the SafeAssign software for plagiarism – be sure to cite your sources. If you directly quote another author – these are not your words and should be cited accordingly. I highly recommend that you review your SafeAssign score and Originality Report. If your score is ≥40 – 50% and you have a bunch of direct citations, you need to adjust your essay and resubmit the assignment.
• It is okay to have direct quotes if they are cited appropriately.
• It is NOT okay to compile an endless series of direct quotes as an essay.
7. Essay should be prepared using Microsoft Word. You all of access to the Office Suite using the student
portal.
8. Rubric – you should review the grading rubric prior to submitting your essay to ensure that you meet
the minimum requirements for the assignment and prevent careless errors and loss of points.

Required Submissions
A 1000-1500 word podcast script document
Step 1
Review the requirements for this podcast script.
In this assignment, you will explain the roles of DNA, inheritance, evolution, and biodiversity in our environment in a written podcast script containing two segments. The podcast script requirements are listed here:
Podcast Segment 1 Title: Garden Variety Inheritance
Take this segment “outside,” as you walk through an imaginary vegetable garden. This will provide the backdrop for a conversation about the Punnett square and its ability to determine inheritance. Use examples from a garden to predict the development of your future vegetable crop.
Examine a plant in your garden that is exhibiting signs of infection. Break down the reproductive cycle of an RNA virus, most common for plant species, using step-by-step analysis. Close with a few helpful tips on how listeners can guard their plants from infection.
Perform an on-air experiment to determine if you are colorblind. Provide your listeners with the parent genotypes in your Punnett square so that they can follow along. This experiment will allow you the opportunity to discuss sex-linked genes and their ability to pass down family traits. Be sure to explain what the sex chromosomes are.
Podcast Segment 2 Title: It’s a Big, Bio-Diverse World Out There
Define evolutionary adaptation and provide the most interesting examples you can find to help engage the listeners.
Outline the process of natural selection. Begin with a brief history of Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection. Then provide examples of natural selection that we see every day, such as insect populations that have grown resistant to certain pesticides.
Depict a scenario in which a biologist for the Smithsonian Institution is assembling a new leopard exhibit. Take this opportunity to explain the phylogenetic tree and how it enables you to track the evolutionary history of a given species.
Step 2
Write a two-segment podcast script.
In a 1000-1500 word document, write a two-segment podcast script that meets the topical requirements listed in Step 1. Format your script in the following manner:
All podcast segments should be contained in a single document.
Label each podcast segment with the podcast segment title provided in the script requirements.
At the end of the script, cite the sources you used in APA style (explore the Purdue OWL (Links to an external site.) website for examples). This information will not count toward your final page count total.
Use clear, concise sentences.
Use language intended for a listener as opposed to a reader. Include language that helps your audience follow along, such as “I want to talk more in depth about….”
Relate the material back to your personal experience, when possible.
Read the script out loud to yourself before finalizing it.
Outcomes:
Explain the flow of genetic information from DNA, through RNA, to protein
Analyze different patterns of genetic inheritance
Explain the mechanisms of evolution
Analyze the relationship between biodiversity and evolution
Analyze the structure of the DNA molecule in relation to its function of information storage
Describe the structure of the human genome
Explain control of genetic expression
Analyze the inheritance of genetic disorders
Summarize evidence that supports evolutionary theory
Explain how units of biodiversity are classified
Explain how biodiversity is gained and lost
Describe the diversity of life
Assignment Overview
For this project milestone, you will create a podcast script that explains the roles of DNA, inheritance, evolution, and biodiversity in our environment. A podcast is an audio file that listeners can download about a topic of their choice. You will not need to create an audio file, but you will need to submit a written script that could be used for this purpose.

Introduction (Identification of the problem) with a clear presentation of the problem as well as the significance and a scholarly overview of the paper’s content. No heading is used for the Introduction per APA currentedition.
Background and Significance of the disease, to include: Definition, description, signs and symptoms. Incidence and prevalence of statistics by state with a comparison to national statistics pertaining to the disease. If after a search of the library and scholarly data bases, you are unable to find statistics for your home state, or other states, consider this a gap in the data and state as much in the body of the paper. For instance, you may state something like, “After an exhausting search of the scholarly data bases, this writer is unable to locate incidence and/or prevalence data for the state of …. This indicates a gap in surveillance that will be included in the “Plan” section of this paper.
Surveillance and Reporting: Current surveillance methods and mandated reporting processes as related to the chronic health condition chosen should be specific.
Epidemiological Analysis: Conduct a descriptive epidemiology analysis of the health condition. Be sure to include all of the 5 W’s: What, Who, Where, When, Why. Use details associated with all of the W’s, such as the “Who” which should include an analysis of the determinants of health. Include costs (both financial and social) associated with the disease or problem.
Screening and Guidelines: Review how the disease is diagnosed and current national standards(guidelines). Pick one screening test (review Week 2 Discussion Board) and review its sensitivity, specificity, predictive value, and cost.
Plan: Integrating evidence, provide a plan of how a nurse practitioner will address this chronic health condition after graduation. Provide three specific interventions that are based on the evidence and include how you will measure outcomes (how will you know that the interventions have utility, are useful?) Note:  Consider primary, secondary, and tertiary interventions as well as the integration of health policy advocacy efforts. All interventions should be based on evidence – connected to a resource such as a scholarly piece of research.
Summary/Conclusion: Conclude in a clear manner with a brief overview of the keys points from each section of the paper utilizing integration of resources.
The paper should be formatted and organized into the following sections which focus on the chosen chronic health condition.
Adhere to all paper preparation guidelines (see below).
