Class Experience

Students will develop an understanding of the differences between bacteria, viruses, and fungus including structural differences, size differences, how we are infected, and how the different conditions are treated.
As a family physician with a decade in private practice, I love teaching young people about how their bodies work.  I believe that people who understand their bodies will take better care of them.  After teaching nearly 1000 students on Outschool, many of whom stay with me long term, I am an expert at taking the high level science and making it accessible to young people.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Nothing in this class will be or is intended to be medical advice.  This is merely educational in nature and will be a surface-level overview.  Your student will not be coming out of this class knowing anything about how to diagnose or treat these conditions and we will not be discussing any personal medical questions/needs.  Students should come with general questions about the topic.
