SC 214 – Practical Health Science. Class presentations available for viewing.

PRACTICAL HEALTH SCIENCE: Our Body, Its Functions and Malfunctions – Part 1

This class is intended to help non-professionals understand the human body, the process of disease and its signs and symptoms, prevention, and the healing process.

The specific goals are:

  1. To show the body structure and function;
  2. To help understand correctly the body’s dysfunctions; and
  3. To empower proper health care through knowledge.

Dr. Moran’s presentation avoids technical terms and expressions, and is made easy to understand with the help of written material and slides that will be shared with the audience before the lectures. This class will address essential knowledge of the cell and organism, and cellular events that affect the functions of the body system. The first part will include cell functions, reaction to injury and general pathological processes such as inflammation, infections, body defenses, allergy, immunity, genetics and cancer. This will be followed by a discussion of the integrative systems such as the neurologic and the endocrine systems, and the blood. Part 2, to be presented next semester (Spring 2016), will continue with a review of the body systems: cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, urinary, genital and reproductive, loco-motor and skin.

Presenter: Edgar M. Moran, M.D., Emeritus Professor of Medicine, UCI Department of Medicine, Division of Hematology-Oncology, since 1978. He has taught classes, taken care of patients, and conducted research in many areas of cancer and certain blood disorders.
