Health Sciences Courses Online
Today, in the western world at least, humans are living longer: life expectancy has now reached 75 years. This is largely due to advances in the health sciences – our understanding of the human body and major maladies has brought more effective treatments, preventive and curative interventions (such as vaccines and antibiotics), and more refined surgical procedures. However, with heart disease, cancers, stroke, diabetes and obesity on the top ten list of fatal diseases in the western world, and population at an all-time high, the need for more health care professionals is greater than ever before.

If I can bring a smile to their faces or make them laugh, it makes my day.”
