About the Assignment

One of the most effective ways to understand how a system works is to examine what happens when it doesn't work. Throughout the year in anatomy and physiology you will conduct research regarding homeostatic imbalances or diseases of the systems we study. This LibGuide will be an invaluable tool to guide you in your research and preparation of your presentation.
