Any topic (writer’s choice)
Write a 1-2 page (single spaced, 11 pt font) narrative/discussion for one of the organisms you identified in this project. This narrative describing your fictional future patient should focus on the medical relevance of each organism, such as virulence factors and the type of infections caused, treatments provided and patient outcome. If neither of your organisms were a pathogen, you may select a related organism that is a pathogen.
