How to create an infographic for a noninfectious disease

For this assignment, you will work in groups to create an infographic for a noninfectious disease. An infographic is “a chart, diagram, or illustration (as in a book or magazine, or on a website) that uses graphic elements to present information in a visually striking way” (Merriam-Webster, n.d.).

How to create an infographic for a noninfectious disease

Each group will select a noninfectious disease and an epidemiology framework or model. Use the framework or model to critique the noninfectious disease from a population health perspective. The model or framework will help your group identify factors that could possibly contribute to the noninfectious disease.
