For this assignment, you will present information about the CDC Notifiable Disease that you signed up for earlier in the semester. The presentation should be in the form of a power point which will be presented in a discussion assignment as a recording.
For this assignment, you will present information about the CDC Notifiable Disease that you signed up for earlier in the semester. The presentation should be in the form of a power point which will be presented in a discussion assignment as a recording. There are several options for recording. You may record using “Studio”, available in the green left hand menu of the course shell. Youtube is another option.
You might also use Videothread. One of the simplest approaches to to record within the power point application. There are video tutorials for using these applications in the next page of this module. If you have questions about how to make your recording, please let me know. After recording, save the file (power point gives you the option to save as an MP4 file). You might also embed the recording (studio) or insert a link (Videothread).
Then upload the power point file to this assignment. Note that you must save your power point presentation as a pptx file separately from the power point recording you make and save as an mp4. In Office 365 this means you need to make a copy of the pptx file to record over and save as an MP4 file. The mp4 will be uploaded to the discussion and the power point pptx file to this assignment for grading. I will listen to your recording from the discussion assignment.
To prepare the presentation use one or more peer reviewed publications and cite these publications either on the slide in which the information is presented or at the end of the presentation.
Your presentation should not exceed 10 slides, including the Introduction and summary slides. Remember that you are presenting a summary of what you have learned about this CDC reportable disease/microorganism. You may add details in presentation that are not included on your slides. Be concise and succinct in preparing your slides.
The statistical summary of notifiable diseases in the United States is published to accompany each volume of CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. This publication contains text, graphs, and maps of the official statistics for the reported occurrence of nationally notifiable diseases in the United States for the designated year. These statistics are collected and compiled from reports to the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System, which is operated by CDC in collaboration with the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists.
For access to annual summaries of notifiable diseases, visit CDC’s Summary of Notifiable Diseases.

The Nationally Notifiable Disease List provides comprehensive reporting of diseases that occur in the United States. The list is compiled through collaborative efforts among state health departments and the CDC. Reporting of diseases is mandated by state legislation and regulations, therefore diseases that are considered notifiable vary from state to state. Internationally notifiable diseases (i.e., cholera, plague, and yellow fever) are also reportable in compliance with the World Health Organization’s International Health Regulations. The following list includes water-related and waterborne diseases that are nationally notifiable.
*Vector or insect-borne diseases associated with water
