Project Lead the Way Biomedical Sciences
In Project Lead the Way Biomedical Sciences, students study the concepts of human medicine, physiology, genetics, microbiology, and public health. Students engage in activities like investigating the death of a fictional person to learn content in the context of real-world cases. They examine the structures and interactions of human body systems and explore the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease, all while working collaboratively to understand and design solutions to the most pressing health challenges of today and the future.
Students investigate various health conditions including heart disease, diabetes, sickle cell disease, hypercholesterolemia, and infectious diseases. They determine the factors that lead to the death of a fictional person and investigate medical treatments that might have prolonged the person’s life.
Human Body Systems (HBS) #HE71
Students explore identity, communication, power, movement, protection, and homeostasis of body systems. They investigate the structures and functions of the human body and the data acquisition software to monitor body functions such as muscle movement.
Students investigate the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Students explore how to prevent and fight infection, how to screen and evaluate the code in human DNA, how to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, and how to prevail when the organs of the body begin to fail.
Students design innovative solutions for the health challenges of the 21st century as they address topics such as clinical medicine, physiology biomedical engineering and public health.

Red Mountain’s Biomedical Science Program teamed up with the Anthony Bates Foundation to screen hearts on April 8th, 2017.
Along side of medical professionals, BioMed students helped screen 90 people! 27 heart problems were found, 7 of which could be considered life threatening issues!! Knowledge is power! That is 7 lives saved!
BioMed was also able to raise over $4,000 for the Anthony Bates Foundation!
Mark your calendars! will be BioMed's next heart screening - open to students, staff and community members at RMHS!!
