Description: This course examines the impact of infectious diseases on humans--in the past, in the present and in the future. From the 14th-century plague to the current HIV/AIDS, diseases have fundamentally altered the shape of society, politics and culture. This class examines some important diseases, including their impact, pathogenicity, infectivity, epidemiology, consequences, costs and lessons learned. Diseases such as smallpox, polio, rabies, tuberculosis, cholera, bubonic plague, influenza, malaria, yellow fever, syphilis and AIDS are investigated. The impact of antibiotics, antibiotic resistance and nosocomial infections also is discussed.
