I´ll be presenting on HG (with a focus on debunking psychological myths about the condition) next week, and will need to do a powerpoint presentation. I only need 3 slides. Any ideas? Please let me know!

Only 3 slides! I am sure it will be a challenge to get what you want in to 3 slides. What are you thinking of putting on there? The DC presentation poster could be used to discuss the impact of hg The site has good references on the causes of hg (Goodwin paper) if you are looking for references.

I have a few hg presentations lying around, but they are much longer than that, so I doubt you would want to use any of those slides, and they aren't pretty or anything.

What is the audience?

Thanks, Aimee! The DC poster is a bit more technical than what I´ve included in the paper that goes with the presentation. My audience is small, just my classmates and teacher in a master-level course on International Health Policy.
It´s just a 3-5 min. presentation. I think I´ll be ok with the slides I made last night, nothing fancy but they´ll work I hope.
I´d love some graphics or pictures, but I´m not sure what would be appropriate. A pic of a pg woman vomiting might be a bit tasteless.

Some pictures of picc lines/ng tubes? You could ask one of these ladies if you could use some of theirs

Maybe just a picture of a pathetic pg woman? I am guessing you don't want to use any of yourself?? Maybe someone could offer one? I know I have a few rather pathetic ones.

Perhaps you can use the HER logo (upper left corner)? Since it is only for class and education purposes, I don't think it is a copyright issue (I face copyright issues a lot at our church, and education is usually an exception).

I seem to remember that, in connection with the pictures of PICCs/IV tubes, someone also added a picture about the meds they had to use. I can't remember who, but maybe you can check with that person to use those pictures?

Thanks for those ideas. I would like a graphic of some sort. I think it would make it so much more real. I can´t find my own pics. I don´t have many of me during my first pg. Aimee, I´d love some pictures, if you have the time to upload and don´t mind my showing them here in Norway :) I don´t want to focus so much on the PICC lines as on how weak HG makes us look and feel.
