Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will be able to identify the cause of Scombroid Fish Poisoning, learn the chemical reaction, symptoms, hospital treatments, and how to prevention of Scombroid Fish Poisoning.  We will also go over some epidemiology and at least two small outbreaks. 
I have a master’s degree in public health and a bachelor’s degree in biology.  My master’s concentration was nutrition; I have done numerous projects on obscure diseases and conditions, including Scombroid Fish Poisoning.

You may want to have paper and a pencil or pen, or some other means to take notes and record assessment answers.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
There will be a (nongraded) pre-class assessment and post-class assessment given in the slideshow.  It will be the same assessment, given to gauge how much has been learned.  I will share answers at the end of the class.  I will also attach the assessment to the "Welcome" Post so that learners can have the assessment open or printed during class if they want; they can fill out the assessment during class, but this is not required. 
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class covers a form of food poisoning.  It is usually not life threatening and usually does not require hospitalization. 
We will watch about 2 minutes of the video “Histamine: The Stuff Allergies Are Made of” during class.  I will play the video clip, so students will not have to go to YouTube themselves.

The sources used to put together the slideshow will be listed as a “References” slide at the end of the presentation.
