1. Conduct research on future healthcare trends, technologies, and innovations.

This is straightforward. It is asking you to research future healthcare trends, technologies, and innovations and then write a 4-5-slide presentation, with notes. One approach to help you with an assignment like this is to provide a tentative outline of points for each slide and some information to consider for the notes. This is the approach this response takes, which is in keeping with BrainMass policy of not completing assignments or parts of assignments for students.
