  1. You and a friend are sitting in a local coffee college hangout talking about your friend’s upcoming wedding. Your friend seems rather hesitant and quiet today. He suddenly breaks down and confides in you that he has just been diagnosed with type 2 herpesvirus. He seems devastated by this news and tells you that he doesn’t know whether or not to tell his fiancee. Consider the implications that this situation suggests.
  2. Your aunt, with whom you feel very close, tells you that she just had a mammogram that showed a dense area in the right breast and that her physician wants to do a breast biopsy.

  2. Your friend confides in you that he is worried about his father’s health. According to your friend, his father has been a heavy alcohol drinker for many years and has just been informed by his physician that he has alcohol-related hepatitis. Discuss how you would explain alcohol-related liver damage to your friend so that he can better understand his father’s condition.
  3. You are visiting relatives and your aunt develops sharp, severe right upper quadrant abdominal pain. You suspect that she may be having an attack of cholelithiasis or cholecystitis. What kinds of questions can you ask her that could help determine whether she is having either of these problems?

  2. Perform a literature search in a database of professional journal articles about one of the factors that impair bone healing (for example, smoking, diabetes, or corticosteroids). Write a summary for your classmates. Include at least two references.
