“There is growing evidence that the microbiota and the integrity of the intestinal barrier play a role in autoimmune diseases. …In the intestinal permeability model of autoimmune diseases, the breakdown of the intestinal tight junction proteins (zonulin/occludin) allows bacteria, toxins, undigested dietary proteins, and other antigens to pass into the lumen, thereby increasing the number of inflammatory reactions and the activation of immune cells throughout the body”. -https://www.mdpi.com/1422-0067/24/22/16352

FINAL EXAM: Coming soon!

After completing the open-book final exam please fill out the HHP Internship form (below the recommended reading/viewing). 
There is a start date on the form that you need to fill out. The start date needs to be the beginning of a month (example: March 1, 202?) and within 2+ months after the exam. “2+” is because your final exam may have been completed in the middle of a month. So… if you finish your final on March 20th you may count it as April 1st and that means you need to start the 2-year internship on June 1st at the latest.
