You Are What You Eat: An Introduction to Biochemistry and the Digestive System

Students will investigate homeostasis and how their digestive system helps them maintain narrow limits. After learning the anatomy of the digestive system, students will discover the physiology of each organ as related to biochemistry. We will discuss eating for a healthy body and mind, and how diabetes isn’t just a sugar-related disease. There will be group activities done through online chats, and a culminating presentation on digestive system issues.
