Description
Journal Entry #2 Question #2 The few new chapters that I got across this time were more biography based, but Dr. Paul  Farmer never fails to amaze me. He truly shows that interest and effort goes a long way. I would  have never guessed that Paul came from a low­income family. Even thought Dr. Farmer comes  from a lower class family, he still manages to become great at what he loves. Comes to show that  people can beat the obstacles of being financially disadvantaged. I also noticed that it seems as  though Dr. Farmer is trying to give back to society. He’s trying to help a society filled with miserable  people who have nearly no access to health services. This may be because he wants the people of  Haiti to lead better lives since his childhood wasn’t the greatest. Based on the previous chapters, I know that Dr. Paul Farmer is a Tuberculosis specialist  and the lecture on microbiology helps explain the details of TB, it’s characteristics as a bacteria and  how it can be treated. Tuberculosis is a bacterium, which means that it carries the characteristics of  a prokaryotic cell. Most prokaryotes are unicellular organisms that do not contain a cell nucleus nor  any membrane bound organelles, meaning that all necessary components of a cell are in a sense,  floating together and not divided by walls within the cell. Bacteria are identified at first through  staining. The main treatment for Tuberculosis, like most bacterium­based diseases is antibiotic  treatment. Antibiotics can be very harmful if used inappropriately, s
