Public Health Projects

For your public health project, you will be assigned a country to study and present information on that country's health care system and standard of care for vision.

Don't forget to cite your sources; this is absolutely necessary.  If you don't give proper credit to the sources for your information (even conversations) it is considered plagiarism.

Use the NLM Citation Guide when formatting your citations.
