This week’s discussion focuses on the health conditions, clinical manifestations and complications related to discussed inflammation, immunity, neoplasms, and cancer.
Based on your readings and understanding of the topics or concepts, develop a question that applies to a concept or a disease process, wellness or illness you found interesting. Use Bloom’s Taxonomy to help you formulate your question. I’ve attached a description of the taxonomy to assist you with the assignment. Submit the question to the discussion thread for one of your classmates to answer.
