Homeostasis STEM Case

In the role of a physician assistant, students help a young man, named Anthony, who has Type II diabetes and high blood pressure. Students must make a diagnosis and then must apply the principles of filtration and homeostasis to help Anthony.

STEM Cases are interactive explorations in which students practice problem-solving and critical thinking as they solve a real world problem as a STEM professional. More About STEM Cases
