High school lesson plan topics - Family History
Diabetes in the Family: A Case Study [PDF | PowerPoint Presentation]
Students examine a case study of a woman with a family history of type 2 diabetes and create a “family health portrait” that will assess her risk of developing diabetes. Using the family health portrait to record the woman’s family history, students identify her genetic, behavioral, and environmental risk factors for type 2 diabetes and make recommendations for lifestyle changes.
