issues to understand how humans function, and the application of that
knowledge to
 improve health and to prevent and cure diseases and other physical and
mental impairments.
 The science builds on many sub fields, including biology, biochemistry,

endeavor to better
understand and improve human health through applications in areas such as
health education,
 biomedical engineering, biotechnology and public health.
