What you will learn:
The experience will lead you through four interconnected content modules built around specific disorders:
Module I: Structure and Organization
Disease focus: Congenital Heart Defect
Module II: Information Systems
Disease focus: Fragile-X Syndrome
Module III: Methods of Communication
Disease focus: Alzheimer’s Disease
Module IV: Energy and Maintenance
Disease focus: Type II Diabetes
In each module, you will use analogies to connect what you already know to what you will learn. By participating in team-based problem-solving activities, you will come away with a better understanding of how discoveries are translated into treatments and how scientists and clinicians tackle some of today’s big problems.
