Human Biology Disease/Disorder Project
Goal: To learn how normal body processes and homeostasis can become compromised by anomalous situations in organs and organ systems such as the effects of the disorder(s) or the disease process and how it can diminish life expectancy, quality of life, activities of daily living, etc.
Topic: Select ONE disorder or disease process pertaining to any of the 11 organ system in the Human Body. (Please stay with physiological processes instead of psychological disorders; i.e.; do not select bipolar disorder, manic depression, schizophrenia, etc.) Look at the end of each chapter in your book for ideas.
After you have selected a disease or disorder, research the causes and effects of the disease / disorder using as many of the following resources as possible:
internet (peer reviewed Web sites),
interview a nurse or physician that treats the disorder/disease
interview a patient that exhibits the disorder or disease (*must have subject’s permission to include their information in your project and a signed consent form), and
any other credible resources
Produce a project to present the information in one of the following formats:
PowerPoint or Prezi Presentation with Recorded Voice Over
Brochure using Microsoft Word
Website (Google Sites)
Infographics (Piktochart or Canva)
A research paper
Other project of your choosing (Please email me your idea)
