Be sure to check out the links above, including the syllabus. While 2012’s course will rely on the same formula that has made it a success for the last 4 years – including nationally known guest speakers, an interactive format, and an emphasis on the most recent findings on evolution and medicine – the course will be new and improved for 2012! This year’s course will include more discussion and more participation: Students will be responsible for teaching their peers on core evolutionary topics in biology and the health sciences. We will spend more time exploring the role of nutrition in human evolution and discover exciting new ideas about the evolution of infectious diseases. Be sure to check back frequently for updates!
