Course Goal:  to think deeply about the practice and experience of health and medicine in the modern world. Our readings are drawn from a wide range of what is sometimes called humanistic medical writing (as opposed to scientific or technical writing).

Consumer Health Information:  is intended for potential or current users of medical services (all of us!). It is designed to be educational, and can help individuals make decisions about health-related behavior and medical treatments.  It differs from clinical information in that it is developed with the layperson in mind, involving less technical language and more user-friendly formats.
