About this course:

Learn about the ten most common medical issues prevalent in aging: arthritis, cancer, dementia, diabetes, depression, falling, heart disease, osteoporosis, respiratory illness, and stroke. We cover the symptoms, tests, treatment, and preventive measures for each condition with a twist of humor, flair, and whimsy. The material is illuminated with funny musical parodies and medical terminology put to rhyme.
