FYS 101 The Human Body, in Sickness and in Health

Throughout history, we have sought "experts" to treat disease. This course will discuss select diseases such as diabetes, Alzheimer's, and heart disease. Students will have the opportunity to learn about others through their own research and that of their classmates. We will focus on topics such as symptoms and prognosis, the impact of research on treatment, social stigmas, the burden of disease on individuals and society, as well as the function of body systems in health and disease prevention.
