Preparation for the assignment: Videos

Disease overview resources : One minute video

 Where to start your research: Explore the "Health Studies Resources Tab "  available on the Clifton and Dover campus web pages. The first collection there is:

The GALE VIRTUAL REFERENCE LIBRARY  (contains  Encyclopedias of Medicine, Surgery, Nursing, etc).is a good starting point - it will give you a description of a disease (causes, diagnosis, treatment) and a few key terms to get you started.
