Thepurpose of reviewing a website is to offer the audience adequateinformation on the website as to why it is appropriate or not. Inthis paper, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders andStroke (NINDS) website will compared with those of National ParkinsonFoundation, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and The Huntington`sDisease Society of America.
NINDSlives up to the functions that it states in its mission statement.Specifically, it states that it core role is to seek criticalknowledge in the brain as well as the nervous system(National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, 2016).As such, the researches that it has initiated are a true fulfillmentof its functions. However, this is not the case with NationalMultiple Sclerosis Society, which states that its core aim is to stopthe effects of MS and end it forever(National Multiple Sclerosis Society,2016). Despite this, the website has not achieved the objectives itstated in its mission statement, as it has not ended MS. The samecase applies with the National Parkinson Foundation, which though ithas tried to achieve its mission of providing expert care andresearch, it has still not achieved that mission(National Parkinson Foundation, 2016).
Thepotential problem with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society isthat it does not offer adequate information on how it plans to endMS. It can be better through being redesigned so that it can havemuch more data and information on its achievements. In the case ofNational Parkinson Foundation, there is a need for more research sothat the website can be helpful to the audience. The Huntington`sDisease Society of America needs to offer more information about howthey provide help to people with Huntington`s disease, which is notforthcoming from the website(Hdsa.org,2016).
