CHECK YOUR PROGRESS
Use this online tool to track your performance and progress through your course.
We are exposed to health threats on a regular basis. Our bodies have complex mechanisms to ward off infections. The defense mechanisms include a barrier of skin and mucous membranes; a nonspecific response to the attack of microbes, should they penetrate the first barrier; and a specific immune response for significant infections.
