This course will examine the cellular, molecular, epigenetic basis of endocrine diseases as a model disease that connects the cellular processes with the physiology and pathophysiology at the tissue and whole organ level. The spectrum of disorders that produces type 2 diabetes will be the focus of the course. Type 2 diabetes, or metabolic syndrome, is globally growing in incidence and is showing up in a younger population. This course uses case studies and current literature reviews in an asynchronous virtual format and will require an online coursework. The ability to interact in formal discussions will be available at the annual HAPS conference. The content of the course is directly applicable to those teaching classes ranging from introductory nutrition, human anatomy and physiology, and upper level courses in physiology. This course is designed to facilitate your teaching as well as updating your content knowledge. This 2-credit course will follow a completely on-line format with some synchronous communication.
