description

The Search for Better Health involves looking at the human body, diseases, health, and how these three things form a more complex love triangle than Bella, Edward, and that shirtless guy from Twilight. Prepared by Cindy Huynh and Sarah Lawman, this module will cover a range of topics including cleanliness, the various types of disease-carrying microbes, the body's immune system, and how diseases can be prevented. Students will gain a deeper understanding on a variety of unsavoury diseases, why being clean is important, the human body's defense against infections, and the various strategies to prevent and treat diseases.
