One thought on “Health Informatics”

  1. Good afternoon! I’m a current high school CTE teacher who will begin to teach Health Informatics for the first time next year. I wanted to know if there was any way you could give me advice or perhaps guide me? I know this is probably asking for to much but I’m just a bit lost. Thank you for your time.
