There are less than two credible sources properly cited within the project medium. BIOL 105 Final Project – 200 points You are assigned to work within a group of three to complete a final project on one of the issues/topics covered during the first part of the course. As a group, you are tasked to create a medium to effectively communicate a biologically based message associated with your chosen topic to a specific and appropriate audience. Final Project Structure and Due Dates: You will be given the last three weeks of classes (weeks 13-15) to work on your project with your group members. During this time you will be responsible for five 10-point in class assignments associated with the completion of the project. Please note that you can only earn these points if you are actively working with your group the entire class period. Points will be deducted if you leave or if you are doing anything other than working on your group project. If you are not able to finish your project within the given class time, then you will need to meet outside of class to complete your project. Your final project product will consist of your communication medium and answers to the following three items: 1. Provide a complete and evidence-based introduction of your topic. What is the main message you intend to convey to your audience (what specifically do you want them to know/do)? 2. Describe the intended audience. Why is it important for this audience to be informed about this topic? 3. Describe the communication medium. What makes this medium an effective way of communicating this topic to your chosen audience? The final project product should be submitted to the Blackboard site by 10pm on Friday, 6/9. After this time, you will lose 10% of the available points for each day late. Each group should designate one person who will be responsible for uploading the final project product (answers and communication medium) to the Discussion board forum and the answers to the “Final project answers” submission link on the course Blackboard site. The final project grading rubric and instructions for Discussion board upload are available in the Final project tab on the Blackboard site. Each person will then be responsible for evaluating two projects completed by groups other than his/her own (10 points each). Instructions for doing so are available in the Final project tab on the Blackboard site. All evaluation responses are due by 10pm on Sunday, 6/11. Presentations will take place during the final exam timeslot on Thursday, 6/15 from 3:30-5:30pm. Each group will have five minutes to present their project product by providing answers to the three prompts (in bold text above). We will project the project medium that you submit to the Discussion board on the overhead projector while you are talking so that the class can view your medium while you present. I will choose which members of the group will answer each of the prompts (one per person). Please note that you are not permitted to take any notes with you. Each person will be graded separately based on his/her presentation performance (30 points). The presentation grading rubric can be found in the Final Project tab on the Blackboard site. Grading: This project is worth a total of 200 points broken up into different components. Project component In class assignments (5 @ 10 points each) Final project product (communication medium and answers to three prompts) Blackboard evaluations (2 @ 10 points each) Presentation TOTAL Points 50 100 20 30 200 Hit Me With Your Best Shot 1. Provide a complete and evidence-based introduction of your topic. What is the main message you intend to convey to your audience (what specifically do you want them to know/do)? Our topic is concerning the link between the MMR vaccine and the increased rate of autism in kids between the ages of zero to two. Due to false information and poorly done/biased studies. People have linked the increasing rate of autism to the MMR vaccine with three hypothesis: 1. The MMR vaccine causes autism by damaging the intestinal lining, 2.The addition of thimerosal is toxic to the central nervous system and 3. The simultaneous administration of multiple vaccines overwhelms and/or weakens the immune system. We chose this topic because the variety of information given to parents is inconclusive. Parents and people in general now have been misled to believe that vaccines (specifically the MMR vaccine) can harm their children, when in fact they are beneficial to them. We want to inform people and parents that not giving vaccines to children harms their child as well as others around them. We wanted to disprove the widely believed myth that so many parents believe and better inform parents. 2. Describe the intended audience. Why is it important for this audience to be informed about this topic? Our intended audience is parents with children between the ages of zero to two, who get their information from propaganda (opinionated and false), they have busy schedules for both themselves and their children, therefore they do not have time to do research on their own so they get their information from the television, news, internet, word of mouth, etc. They care deeply about their children and their health. They are heavily involved in their children’s lives and the activities they participate in. They juggle work, caring for their kids and family, social activities, and their children’s activities. Leisure time in their life is very minimal, so when searching for information they want it easy to understand and quick. It is important for our audience to be informed about this topic because it concerns the health of their child and if they are misinformed it could hurt their child. 3. Describe the communication medium. What makes this medium an effective way of communicating this topic to your chosen audience? We have chosen a brochure as the medium for communication. Within the brochure we will address each hypothesis people believe and address why it does not cause autism. There will also be a suggested websites/sources panel. This will allow for the parents to be able to further investigate the matter on their own time if they would like. This medium is the most effective way of communicating our message to our chosen audience because it is matter of fact, quick to go through and easy to digest. The brochure will be in bullet points, which further allows for them to easily digest it. This medium is also able to be taken with them, allowing them to share it with their friends and colleagues. References: CDC.gov CDI Oxford Journal: Vaccines and Autism: A Tale of Shifting Hypotheses Healthychildren.org “Vaccine Studies: Examine the Evidence” Benefits of the MMR Vaccine and the Rise of Autism The History of MMR MMR was introduced in 1971, as a single shot vaccine that contains three live debilitated viruses. The survivability rates of young children skyrocketed after this was introduced. In 1998, Dr. Wakefield, a surgeon and medical researcher, published a study claiming a link between the MMR vaccine and autism. The study focused on 12 children with chronic intestinal disorders, all who had normal mental development until receiving the MMR vaccine, then eventually regressed into autism spectrum disorders. However, his work and study was later proved to be fraudulent by The Sunday Times, which stated that he changed and manipulated information to create the relationship between autism and the MMR vaccine. Also, in 2007 a hearing held by the General Medical Council unveiled that Wakefield was paid by parents who thought there was a link between the MMR vaccine and autism. Three hypothesis have been come to light concerning the link between the MMR vaccine and the rising rate of autism. These hypothesis include: the combination MMR vaccine causes autism by damaging the intestinal lining which allows for the entrance of encephalopathic proteins, the addition of thimerosal in vaccines is toxic to the central nervous system, and the simultaneous administration of multiple vaccines overwhelms and weakens the immune system. There are many benefits to receiving the MMR vaccine for your child and the community. Receiving the MMR vaccines provides protection from measles, mumps, and rubella. In addition, receiving the MMR vaccine helps sustain herd immunity. Herd immunity is when the majority of the population being vaccinated contains the outbreak of diseases. A worldwide increase in the rate of autism diagnosis has been driven by broaden diagnostic criteria and increased worldwide awareness, This has fueled concerns that an environmental exposure like vaccines might cause autism. Sources: CDC.gov CDI Oxford Journals: Vaccines and Autism: A Tale of Shifting Hypothesis Healthychildren.org “Vaccines Studies: Examine the Evidence IS YOUR CHILD’S SAFETY A PRIORITY? The Measles, Mumps and Rubella Vaccination Doesn’t Cause Autism Is there a risk receiving the MMR vaccine? • • • Andrew Wakefield’s published paper postulated that the MMR vaccine caused intestinal inflammation that led to translocation of usually nonpermeable peptides to the bloodstream and later to the brain, which affected brain development in children causing autism. Wakefield’s case series was proven inaccurate due to several issues. The case study did not include control subjects which did not allow for concrete evidence concerning whether the occurrence of autism following the MMR vaccine was causal or coincidental. The data collected during the case series assessments was not collected blindly, nor was it collected systematically. The measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine has not been found to cause chronic intestinal inflammation or loss of intestinal barrier function. Is thimerosal in vaccines a concern? • • • • Thimerosal is a mercury based preservative used to prevent contamination of multidose vials of vaccines. In 1999 the AAPPHS and the Public Health Service recommended the immediate removal of mercury and thimerosal from all vaccines given to infants. Multiple ecological studies and cohort studies were performed in three different countries comparing the incidence of autism with thimerosal exposure from vaccines. In Denmark, more than 1,200 children with autism that were identified during 1990 to 1960 were examined. The study found that the risk of autism did not increase between children vaccinated with thimerosal-containing vaccines and those vaccinated with thimerosal-free vaccines or between children who received greater or lower quantities of thimerosal. It was also found that the rate of autism increased after the removal of thimerosal from all vaccines. Other studies were conducted by the United States, England, Canada, and Sweden further proving that the addition of Thimerosal was not causing autism. Is more than one vaccine too many? • • • • The administration of multiple vaccines does not overwhelm the immune system. The immune system of an infant has a vast array of protective responses. A conservative estimate shows that the body is capable of responding to thousands of vaccines at once. Multiple vaccines administered over time does not weaken the immune system. Elimination of vaccines will endanger the child to many dangerous diseases. Autism is not an immune mediated disease. There is no evidences suggesting causation between vaccines and autism. Autism is cause by genetic variations. Each vaccine goes through vigorous research and testing to ensure safety and effectiveness. Vaccines must be approved by the FDA and tested before being administered to the public. Scanned by CamScanner Scanned by CamScanner Scanned by CamScanner Scanned by CamScanner

Diabetes Awareness Worksheet
1. What is your evidence-based message (in 1-3 sentences)?
Parents should take their children for diagnosis of diabetes because one-third of diabetes patients
do not know they have the disease. The awareness of the disease in early stages is important to
avoid risk factors such as unhealthy eating.
2. Who is your intended audience?
Our intended audience is parents who are responsible for the health of their children. They
should get the information so that they take action towards early diagnosis and control of
diabetes.
3. Describe your chosen communication medium. By what means are you going to
communicate your message to your chosen audience?
The communication channel will be through printed brochures and publication in all parents’
magazines we can come across.
4. Why do you feel this medium is an effective way of communicating your message
to your chosen audience?
Parents are busy people who are engaged with their children. They will read brochures because
they are short and elaborate. Also, parents’ magazines provide a good place for parents who like
reading
5. List your next steps after completing your communication medium. Identify the
individuals within your group who will be responsible for completing each of
these steps.
The next step is printing the brochures and distributing them. Also, we need to visit magazine
publications. Meshan will print the brochures and Mubarak will distribute during parent

functions in schools. Badran will approach the main magazine publishing centers for a feature of
