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.
