Health and Wellness for Life

Mental and physical well-being is, in part, determined by individual behavior, personal choice, and circumstances.  Due to an increased understanding of the myriad benefits of a healthy lifestyle, coupled with nationwide attention to physical, mental, and social issues impacting today’s society, maintaining a healthy, well-balanced existence is more important than ever.  This course is intended to expand students’ awareness of lifestyle choices that will have a positive impact upon health and well-being throughout the college experience and beyond.  During the course, we will ask you to read a variety of texts, as well as undertake a series of written and oral assignments and group projects to foster a critical understanding of mental, personal, and physical values which will promote healthy decision making for a lifetime of well-being.
