AbstractThis thesis constructs a comprehensive analysis of dormant viruses to educate college students about the threats these organisms pose to their health. Focusing on the Varicella Zoster virus, Epstein Barr virus, and Human Papillomavirus, this research provides a detailed description of the pathology and treatment options for each of these viruses. While the defenses of our immune system are paramount to our health, this research reveals that additional protective measures, such as vaccines, are vital to our wellbeing.
