Description: By the conclusion of this this TBL module students will be able to evaluate the relative effectiveness of different infectious disease control strategies based on knowledge of parasite life-cycles. They will recognize that infectious disease is a complex problem with regional and societal facets in addition to basic and clinical science. Pre-work focuses on independent study of parasite life-cycles while in class activities focus on applying this knowledge to solve real-world problems.
