Anyone do this course?


I've been looking for resources b/c I want to make sure I have good info in case my daughter gets sick with an illness that has a vaccine available.  I want to make sure I am knowledgeable, since much of the health care system is not (though I'm pretty confident in my daughter's providers.)


I ran across this course and wondered if anyone has an opinion on it. .  .


Or, does anyone have other recommendations of books or anything else that would be helpful.

I haven't done the course, but it does look very interesting.  


One book that we've found invaluable is Dr. Mendelsohn's book "How to Raise Healthy Kids (Despite Your Pediatrician)".  It is a bit dated, he passed away in the 90's I believe, but he was a pediatrician with 30 years of experience that started out completely pro-everything and ended up against a lot.  He goes into really good detail in the book of what to look for in regards to specific ailments, things that can help, and most importantly when to go in to get acute care.  We highly recommend it.  


Good luck in your search :)
