H‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍UMAN DISEASE PRESENTATION – Instructions 200 points 1. You will select and present a human disease. (Tuberculosis) 2. The disease presentation project consists of 3-4 page fully referenced Disease Report. 3. You will present the disease in class. Your presentation should be no longer than 20 minutes and no shorter than 15 minutes, with a 2-minute question and answer session. 4. Your disease presentation must include information on the following topics: a. Physiological basis for this disease: Talk about the healthy state of the body. For instance, if you are talking about cirrhosis of the liver explain how the liver works when it is healthy. If you are talking about tuberculosis, then explain how the lungs function when they are healthy. Just because we already discussed this in lecture you are to assume no student has ever heard it before. This should include approximately 5 minutes of your presentation. b. Etiology: What are the causes and origins of this disease? Is there any important historical significance to this disease? Where does this disease usually start? Is there a particular season for this disease? Is this disease communicable? How is the disease transmitted? c. Pathology: How does this disease alter the physiology of the body? What happens to the body as it passes from the healthy to the unhealthy state? How does this disease multiply and grow? What will the body do to attempt to bring itself back to homeostasis? Be incredibly detailed. Include any and all physiological mechanisms that may breakdown because of this disease. d. Signs and Symptoms: Make sure when you ta‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍lk about this section you are explaining why the patient has these signs and symptoms. It may be beneficial to put Symptoms and Pathology together. Do NOT just list these and read them off! e. Prognosis and Treatment: If there is more than one type of treatment, then choose only one or two that are used most often. Explain why this type of treatment is used for this particular problem. Will the person survive? What will their quality of life be like? How does this treatment actually work? Again, specify the mechanisms of this treatment and how it affects the pathology of the disease and the physiology of the body? f. Epidemiology: Epidemiology: nation and/or worldwide instance, at risk populations 5. You will be required to have a Bibliography. Your Bibliography must contain no less then 5 references and 3 of these five must be from journal articles. Do not limit yourself to the Merck Manual and Taber’s Medical Encyclopedia.

You will write and submit a 3–4-page report about your selected disease. The report must follow the outline described for the presentation and must contain no less then 5 references and 3 of these five must be from journal articles. 7. The order of presentation will be determined by a lottery, and I shall post the order of presentations on Canvas. 8.
