BSC 546 Humans and Disease: Communicable Diseases Section: 601
Disease has wide-sweeping effects on all facets of society: economics, arts, medicine, and politics. This course will examine disease from a unique perspective in that we will discuss each specific disease by first examining pathophysiology, epidemiology, treatment, and the anatomy and physiology of the body system affected. We will then explore social aspects of each disease, such as how human history, politics, and local and world economies have been affected. Diseases to be discussed may change, but will likely include Ebola, HIV/AIDS, Smallpox, Tuberculosis, Syphilis, Influenza, vector-borne diseases (malaria, dengue fever, and West Nile virus), Cholera, SARS, Polio, Hepatitis, and the Bubonic Plague.
