  • Alcohol and drugs are for better or worse, an accepted part of our society. Unfortunately, we are wealthy enough to buy consumables that can destroy our health—a luxury many cultures don’t have. Our goal today is to find our how drugs and alcohol work to destroy our bodies and rob us of our health.
  • The internet has allowed virtually anyone to express and communicate their ideas to the entire world. Why is this a problem?
  • Information is not checked for accuracy

  • Examples of reliable databases include:
  • Enoch Pratt Free Library
  • Gale Online Library
  • TSS (Baltimore City Public Schools)
  • Show samples of locally available databases:

  • MedlinePlus, a government web site
  • Gale Online Library
  • TSS (Baltimore City Public Schools)
  • Demonstrate navigation through MedLine Plus and Gale Virtual Reference Library.

  • A description of the disease
  • Symptoms of the disease (word wall word)
  • Diagnosis of the condition (word wall word)
  • Treatment (word wall word)
  • Cure (word wall word)
