    I like the list, however keep in mind this page has to be objectives for what the reader is supposed to learn as a result of looking at your website as a whole.

    I like the bullet point format. The last sentence is confusing. I would recommend changing the order in the last sentence to make your point more clear.

    Maybe put the videos actually into the wiki page. All of the links make it less aesthetically pleasing. Also less pages would make the wiki stronger, maybe try to find pages that highly relate and combine them, the amount of pages is a bit overwhelming.

    I like the intro video and using a page here to ‘set the stage’ for the rest of the wiki. One change to consider – calling Dr. Turner the “founder” of Turner’s Syndrome is a bit awkward; perhaps describe him as the first physician to work with the disease or something along those lines.

    I like the video, it really helps. I like the lists. You should try to condense all of the links into a few.
