Causes of Birth Defects: An Epidemiological Mystery

After taking a pretest on the causes of birth defects, emerging epidemiologists are introduced to a scenario in which babies in Cameron County, Texas have been born with brain and spine defects. Participants each take on a role: physician, epidemiologist, parent, or lab technician. They research the case, prepare a report, and take part in a community discussion. A plethora of information and handouts are included to make this lesson a success in your high school health or biology course.
