Middle & High School: Functional Nutrition

This is an upper-level high school course that is set up slightly different than the other Human Body Detectives courses; it is an independent class where students read class notes, watch video lessons from Dr. Heather and suggested videos, engage in activities plus use the resource page to dive a little deeper into topics of interest.

In addition, there is a discussion section to ask questions, community board to interact with other students and Dr. Heather, and optional quiz at the end.
