Create a pamphlet that communicates the information from the analysis submitted as Assessment 1. Your pamphlet should be appropriate to your audience and informs them of the impacts lifestyle choices have on the risk of cancer.
Scientific results that arenâ€t reported might as well not exist. Theyâ€re like the sound of one hand clapping.
â€”Robert O. Becker, orthopedic surgeon and Researcher
Cells, the microscopic building blocks of life, were first discovered and named by Robert Hooke in 1655. But it took another 200 years, and a scientist named Rudolph Virchow, to study how diseases actually affect those cells. Today, doctors use Virchowâ€s work to better diagnose and treat patients. But this is only possible because Virchow persevered in his work, told the scientific community about his discoveries, and made sure that others could confirm his findings (Edwards, 2013; Schultz, 2008).
In this assessment, youâ€ll continue to grow your innovation, problem-solving, and results-driven skills as you explore how scientists stay resilient in the face of failure, explain their work, and ensure that their conclusions are reliable.
Itâ€s hard to overstate the importance of reading our own instruction book, and thatâ€s what the human genome project is all about.
â€”Francis Collins, former director of the National Human Genome Research Institute
The Human Genome Project was a massive undertaking with an ambitious goal: to create a map of every human gene and learn how all our traits, including those for certain disorders, are passed down from generation to generation (National Human Genome Research Institute, n.d.).
In this assessment, you will further develop your problem-solving skills as you explore how scientists are using discoveries about the human genome to treat and prevent diseases.

In Assessment 1, you analyzed a data set and then used the scientific method to determine if the data supports your hypothesis on whether lifestyle choices can reduce the risk of cancer. In this assessment, you will demonstrate results-driven skills by translating the study you analyzed in Assessment 1 into a pamphlet that will educate a targeted audience so they can make informed decisions for themselves.
Use the following scenario for this assessment:
You work as a research assistant at a primary care center, where your role is to ask patients their lifestyle choices (that is, smoking, exercise, environmental exposures, et cetera). Based on this information, create a pamphlet to inform patients the risks of their choices so that the patients can make informed decisions for themselves.
Create a pamphlet that is appropriate for your targeted audience. You may use tools such as Word, PowerPoint, or Publisher to create your pamphlet. If you feel stuck, you can do a Google search to see examples of pamphlet layouts.
Complete the following:
When you are satisfied with your pamphlet, submit it to this assessment.
Your submission should meet the following requirements:
