write a 3-4 page memo to an individual who has a decision-making role in the field of Maternal and
Child Health. Students will identify the appropriate person as the audience for the memo, depending
on the nature of the topic selected. Students do not need to address the entire issue selected, but
identify a specific activity that is under the control of the recipient of your memo. Writing a memo is different than the writing a term paper. Memos are read by
busy individuals, and they do not want long background sections and flowery language. Memos are
short and very specific. The writer needs to consider the audience and not make recommendations beyond
what that person can do.
