You can type "brochure" or "mailer" on the search button in PowerPoint or MSWord, and you can find pre-installed templates. Typing "brochure" will probably give you more options. Have fun with it, be creative.
Instructions:
The local health department is considering a new program for the county. Your supervisor has reminded you that it is important to know your consumers in order to effectively market to them.
