Unit Assessment Pt 1: Write an editorial about ethics in medicine and medical research. You can use any of the unit resources including the book, the videos, and this week’s readings to support your claim. Your claim MUST BE SUPPORTED with EVIDENCE from this unit. Your editorial title should make a statement with your claim. Make sure you include MLA citations for any supporting resources you use in your editorial. Your editorial must not exceed 450 words.This requires you to narrow your claim and focus on something you are able to persuade your audience to accept in a limited number of words.The title and list of sources do not count as part of your 450 words. Your editorial must be 100% in your own words. Any quotes or ideas you take from sources (other than your brain), you MUST cite both in-text (Author’s last name) and with a full MLA citation at the end of your editorial.
