Choose a relevant social health issue and visualize the data available for the topic to make it understandable to the audience. The goal is to raise social awareness of the social issue so that the audience understands the truth behind the data. It should be easily understandable, visually pleasing, and well organized.
I chose to research data on the top five multifactorial diseases in the United States. Multifactorial diseases are those that are genetically inherited and influenced by environmental factors such as diet, exercise, pollutants, and smoking. My family has been personally affected by some of these diseases and I recently went to get my blood tested to see if I am at risk for any genetically inherited diseases. I hope to spread awareness to this issue and encourage action, especially for young adults. If we all go get tested for our risk, we can improve our immediate and long-term health. Regular check-ups and doctor visits are crucial in giving ourselves the best chance at living a full, healthy life with fewer complications and inherited diseases.
The poster successfully visualized big data to empower the audience. While some design decisions had to be made to increase clarity and readability, the overall design is still captivating and intriguing. It can make a true impact in an individual's health future.
