"The Heart"
ABOUT THIS LESSON: Anatomy & Physiology, Heart

Lesson 8 of 17. This module covers a favorite topic of mine. The heart is an amazing organ and one of the most prone to disease and complications. This module will give your children a head start in understanding the engine of the body and why it is so necessary to take care of it. It is both fun and engaging- another must for the older, aspiring health practitioner.
