As a final project for my Professional Writing course, I had to address an important health care issue that the United States is facing today and come up with a program that will help raise awareness and solve it. I chose to implement a rehabilitation shelter for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence, and created a brochure and poster presentation to pitch it to my professor and the other students evaluating my program. After spending over six hours designing both in the computer lab the other night, I feel quite accomplished with the end product. :) So this is just me sharing it with you guys! :P
Because my layout was a tri-fold brochure, it might be a little confusing to read in terms of page order. This was also only supposed to be a condensed version of all the information on my poster, so a lot of statistics may not be present. Personally, I think I did a good job making it look professional. All the in-text citations from the five peer-reviewed articles that I used may make it look a little cramped, though. If you’re actually interested in reading it, clicking on photo will enlarge it!
And here is the actual poster that I had standing next to me when I presented in front of my classmates. I actually regret not making it more colorful or adding in graphs and charts. But to be honest, there really wasn’t a lot of space to fit all my material. I apologize for the poor photo quality, though. I quickly snapped it with my phone under bad lighting. I swear the pictures that I pasted onto it were much more vibrant-looking!
This was my third presentation this semester, and we’re always expected to be dressed professionally. There’s actually a section on the grading rubric for appearance and dress. So here’s what I wore when I presented this program yesterday. Again, I took it with my phone camera – so don’t judge. :P
If this kind of work is what I’m going to be doing in the future for my career in Helath Care Management, then I don’t mind it at all. If anything, I actually enjoy it! And hopefully, I get an A on this project. >.<; Until next time! ^.^
