It is likely safe to say that generally microbes are perceived negatively. For this topic, explore the resources given in this presentation (and others from the web if you like) then develop an idea for a health education plan centering on the beneficial nature of microbes.
The health education plan should contain:
- a description of the main objectives (what would you want participants to understand),
- an explanation of how you would carry out the education plan,
- and who the target audience is.
