"It's the 21st century, where's the cure for cancer already?!"

"I have a cold, give me antibiotics!"

"I use homeopathic medicine!"

Statements like these show the frustration and disconnection between the health care system and it's patients.  This disconnect is caused by the lack of understanding of diseases and health.  Unfortunately, the result of this disconnect can be more than mere frustration- note the rise of antibiotic resistant diseases due to our misuse of antibiotics.

In this course, we will discuss various types of diseases, their origins, transmissions and manifestations within the body, and what can be done about them. We will also explore the latest state of the art technology in combating diseases.  You will leave this course with both a realistic understanding of diseases a renewed sense of hope that we can and will persevere!
