●      Prepare a one-page, consumer-focused synthesis for one of the five diseases listed above. Your synthesis should be a simple description of pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, diagnostic methods, commonly prescribed medications, and appropriate lifestyle changes. Include links in the text of your synthesis to cite where you obtained disease-specific information.
