There will be one written assignment due during the semester. This assignment will involve selecting a writing topic that you’ve seen in social media, and to explain that topic based on what we have covered in lecture up until that point, within the context of applied human physiology. Social media includes news reports (televised, in print, or online news reports – from reputable sources only) and televised commercials that present a human health issue or treatment (e.g. pharmaceutical drugs or other treatments for diseases and disorders). Based on what we’ve discussed in lecture and what you have learned from reading the textbook you need to discuss the physiology of that topic in as much depth as you’re capable from what you’ve learned in this course. If it is a pharmaceutical treatment for a disease, how does that treatment work on a physiological level? This assignment is your chance to demonstrate your understanding of topics we’ve discussed in class and how well you are able to extrapolate that understanding by being able to discuss an example of human physiology routinely encountered in medicine, human health, and treatment of disease states. This paper will be limited to 3 pages only.
This is an example of a writing assignment taken from an internet search. please be reminded that the paper is limited to a maximum of 3 pages.
