Lost in the Desert! 

Students learn about the interconnectedness of the body, with a particular focus on the skin as one of the most important homeostatic organ systems, in this case study in which the protagonist sets out on a three-hour drive across the Arizona desert to meet his fiancee in California, and never shows up. The case was designed to be used with students in a lower-level anatomy and physiology class who are interested in pursuing careers in nursing, occupational therapy, and other health related fields.


Lost in the Desert! Hebrew Translation 

In this directed case study, translated from the original English into Hebrew, students read about a man who sets out on a three-hour drive across the Arizona desert to meet his fiancee in California but never shows up at his final destination.  Students learn about the interconnectedness of the body, with a particular focus on the skin as one of the most important homeostatic systems. This case was designed for use in a lower-level anatomy and physiology course with students who are interested in pursuing careers in nursing, occupational therapy, and other health-related fields. It would also be appropriate for high school students in biology.
