Pathways to Health

Past Program Course. no longer available

How does disease impact our view and experience of life?

The Pathways to Health course is an investigation of diseases of the body, and our need to control them. To begin, you will focus on anatomy by investigating the different systems that constitute the body, exploring different types of diseases, and how they manifest themselves as a disorder in the organism. You will first be challenged to put yourself in the shoes of a cancer patient and question what is this thing we call “disease”. Then, you will select a different disease to explore by researching its history, its physical process, and by interviewing someone who has or had it.
