Prompt: You serve on a committee for a charitable foundation that will vote and decide how to fund grant requests for research on specific diseases. This research could lead to better understanding of disease mechanisms or new therapies/interventions. The applications for the grants have been narrowed down to 3 choices.
Out of these choices, you may only choose one to vote for:
Duchenne muscular dystrophy
Amylotropic lateral sclerosis
Which option will you choose and try to convince others to vote for? There is no perfect choice available and all three choices have strong grant applications.
Through this 2-part discussion with your classmates, you will state your choice, explain the disease, and why you chose to vote this way using appropriate and sufficient evidence. Your explanation should include the cause of the disease, impact on the anatomy and physiology of the body, demographics, symptoms, currently available research/treatments, and prognosis.
You will respond to your classmates’ posts to convince them why they should vote the same way as you. You may also be convinced by a classmate to switch your initial vote. In other words, you need to know why your choice is the best choice and why the other choices would not be.
Remember, no answer is one hundred percent correct so you are not saying that others are wrong, but instead why your choice is optimal based on evidence.
Initial Post (Worth up to 70 points)
Length: 250-500 words
All sources (3 required) must be properly cited (see APA source citation below)
State and explain your choice. When stating the evidence, consider the challenges that others may have to your evidence and how you could counter those respectful challenges.
APA Source Citation
