Health and Wellness

(IN course: 3506)

Health & Wellness provides the basis to help students adopt and maintain healthy behaviors. Health education contributes directly to a student's ability to successfully practice behaviors that protect and promote health and avoid or reduce health risks. Through a variety of instructional strategies, students practice the development of functional health information (essential concepts); determine personal values that support health behaviors; develop group norms that value a healthy lifestyle; develop the essential skills necessary to adopt, practice, and maintain health-enhancing behaviors.
