Love Your Lungs videoconference 

The Contemporary Issues through Videoconferencing class worked with a new content provider called Connect2Texas in this videoconference about lung health. We attended a class on lung health given by Dr. Larry Johnson from the College of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M University.

The structure and function of the respiratory system was discussed and shown up close with anatomy specimens and models, as well as demonstrations. The effects of cigarette smoking on cell function, appearance and condition of the lung were highlighted.

"Dr. Johnson presented the CITVC class with factual information about the dangers of cigarette smoking. He gave a nice visual presentation so we could see what smoking does to our lungs. Although we hear this all the time, it's good to be reinforced because teenagers sometimes don't understand how bad smoking is with its often positive portrayal in the media and the pressures of our peers."  -Mat
