Principles of Biomedical Sciences
Welcome to Principle of Biomedical Sciences!
This course provides an introduction to the biomedical sciences through exciting “hands-on” projects and problems. Student work involves the study of human medicine, research processes and an introduction to bio-informatics. A theme throughout the course is to determine the factors that lead to the death of a fictitious person. The students investigate lifestyle choices and medical treatments that might have prolonged the person’s life. Key biological concepts including homeostasis, metabolism, inheritance of traits, feedback systems, and defense against disease are embedded in the curriculum. Additional biological principles including the design process, feedback loops, fluid dynamics, and the relationship of structure to function are incorporated in the curriculum where appropriate. The course is designed to provide an overview of all the courses in the Biomedical Sciences Program and to lay the scientific foundation necessary for student success in the subsequent courses in the pathway. The course contains the following units:
Unit 1 - Human Body Systems Unit 5 - Hypercholesterolemia
Unit 2 – Heart Disease Unit 6 – Infectious Disease
Unit 3 – Diabetes Unit 7 – Medical Interventions
Unit 4 – Sickle Cell Disease Unit 8 – Grant Proposal

DIRECTIONS: Underneath your finished Prezi, select "Share", copy the link. Now go to the wikispace page, and click "Edit" (found on top right). Type your name under column "Group Member Names" and then paste your link under the column "Prezi link".
Instead of taking notes for step #9, you will make a Prezi with your partner.
Your Prezi should include the following:
1. Picture and description of the organization of the food pyramid
2. Number of recommended servings for each food group
3.. Summary of Dietary Recommendations in red chart
4. Organization of the “Nutrition Facts” food label:
a. Difference between “mandatory and voluntary”
-name the mandatory components
b. Why were these required elements selected?
c. What does their order on the label indicate?
d. What are % Daily Values and why are they important?
e. How many calories per day are the % Daily Values based on? Do you consume this amount? If not, what should you do?
