Therese Vinson Doan has a PhD in Nursing from UCSF. She holds an Associate Professor position at San Francisco State University (SFSU). Although she is considered to be the Geriatric specialist at SFSU School of Nursing, her 35-year clinical experience is rather eclectic. Prior to teaching, her nursing practice included internal medicine, critical care, women’s health, community health, and palliative care. As a nurse, her approach to patient care and self-care is holistic. She views the human body, mind, and spirit as one entity united in health and illness. In this course, she will convey important and common information about human anatomy and physiology, aiming to help you to understand and deepen your relationship with your body.
