An Introduction to Human Structure and Function

Some of the systems that will be examined include the heart and blood vessels, the digestive system, the respiratory system, reproduction and the immune system. The class will address how these systems are put together structurally, their anatomy, plus how they work, their physiology and how the various bodily systems are linked.
