HumBio introduced me to an interdisciplinary approach to studying and solving problems that I am trying to pass on to my Biology students. We've looked at how the high prevalence of malaria can help explain differing rates of sickle cell anemia among different populations and how lactose tolerance evolved. And, of course, they love all of Tom's rap songs! My time as a HumBio CA inspired me to find creative ways to interest my students in Biology so they will go on to study it in college!
