In the UK there are more than 2 million people known to have diabetes and it is estimated that well over a million people have the condition without being aware of it.
More than 18 million Americans have diabetes while another 20 million are in a pre-diabetic state.
Students will investigate the disease, including its types, causes, symptoms, and treatment options.
Provided with several medical histories and simulated Neo/Blood and urine samples, they&apos ll perform a series of standard diagnostic tests.
Based upon their diagnosis and the patient&apos s medical history, they will be challenged to construct a plan for managing the individual&apos s condition.
The class will also take a &apos diabetic risk test&apos to assess their own potential for developing the disease.
Class size – 40 students
