Course Description

Although evolutionary biology has important implications for the medical concepts of health, "normal" physiology and illness, it has been widely ignored in medicine. Every evolutionary advance may sometimes promote health and other times cause illness. This course is a survey of scientific and social implications of current ideas and controversies of evolutionary medicine for clinical and public health.
