HS 310 - Cardiovascular Disease: A Global Epidemic

3 credit(s)
According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular disease kills nearly 17 million people around the world each year. In the United States, heart disease has been the leading underlying cause of death nearly every year since 1900, and heart disease takes an American life every 36 seconds. This course therefore provides a comprehensive presentation of cardiovascular diseases. The focus is on disease prevalence, mechanisms underlying disease and common treatments as a basis for understanding chronic diseases prevalent in patients treated by health care professionals. Discussions and research focusing on emerging medical therapies, controversial practices, and disease prevention help students think critically about our ability to counter the epidemic of cardiovascular disease.
Prerequisite(s): BIO 212  and BIO 213 .
