Resources: Use your internet browser to search for newsletter templates.

Imagine you are an office manager at a health care facility that includes the following departments: cardiology, respiratory, gastroenterology, and urology. As the office manager, you have been asked to create a newsletter for new and existing patients. The newsletter will inform patients about different body systems, including their structure, function, and different diseases that affect that system. Patients will learn how a disease is diagnosed in a particular system and the type of doctor they will need to see if they have an ailment within a specific body system.

You will create four 260- to 350-word sections for your newsletter throughout Weeks Two through Five. Each section will focus on the body system covered for that week.




Week Two: Cardiovascular


Week Three: Respiratory


Week Four: Gastrointestinal


Week Five: Urinary
