of this assignment is to study, in depth, the diseases and disorders
that affect the human body as we get older.
Due to the onset
of the senior boom, the elderly are living longer and there are less
health care professionals to take care of them. It is almost impossible to read the newspaper
or watch TV without hearing about human diseases, new cures, drugs and
treatments and the state of our health care system.
The key to aging
well is to understand the diseases and conditions that afflict the elderly.
To help our class better understand these diseases and conditions we
will complete a “Science of Aging” project that includes the use
of video podcast and other technology.
