Disease and Human Body Systems
From the battle to prevent the spread of AIDS to breakthroughs in cancer research, disease and its impact on the human body are everyday subjects for health organizations and the scientific community as well as the popular press. News articles, reports, studies, and other resources can provide insights into how disease affects the human body and its systems. These resources inform not only researchers and scientists, but also public health officials and the general population.
In this Discussion, you locate an article related to a human disease and you analyze the information the article provides. Also, you explore how greater understanding of a disease’s effects on the human body informs public health and disease prevention.
To prepare for this Discussion,
Locate an article related to a particular human disease from the popular press (e.g., Time, CNN, Newsweek), a federal or global health organization (e.g., CDC, WHO, World Bank, UNAIDS), or a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal such as the Journal of Public Health and Epidemiology (search using the CINAHL database in the Walden library). This article should have been published within the last 2 years.
Identify which body system(s) is/are impacted by the disease. Consider the implications of the subject matter discussed in the article on the body system(s).
Reflect on how public health and disease prevention are impacted by the subject matter of the article.
By Thursday 10/19/17, post a 300-word summary of the article you reviewed that is related to a particular human disease (include the article citation in proper APA format). Then describe the implications of the subject matter discussed in this article on one or more human body systems. Finally, explain how understanding the impact of this disease on body systems might inform public health and disease prevention. Be sure to support your response with references to your chosen article as well as this week’s Learning Resources.
